A Unity man who was removing a deer from a roadway Friday evening was killed when he was struck by a car.

Westmoreland County Coroner Kenneth Bacha identified the victim as James A. Armstrong, 65, of Dearborn Road.

According to Bacha, Armstrong was removing a deer from the intersection of Frye Farm and East High Acres roads when he was struck by a vehicle traveling east on Frye Farm Road.

Deputy coroners Joshua C. Zappone and Doug Lewis investigated the incident and pronounced Armstrong dead at the scene at 7:12 p.m.

Bacha did not identify the driver of the vehicle.

Cyril H. Wecht and Associates will conduct an autopsy, which is scheduled for Saturday, Bacha said.
