Pitcairn man killed in Hempfield crash early Sunday

A Pitcairn man was killed in a single-vehicle crash in Hempfield early Sunday.

Brandon A. Turner, 22, died of blunt-force injuries to the chest, according to Westmoreland County coroner Kenneth A. Bacha. Turner was traveling alone, and speed is believed to be a factor in the accident.

State police in Greensburg said his Dodge Avenger was traveling west on Route 136, and drove head-on into an embankment at the intersection with Millersdale Road at about 12:30 a.m.

Turner was wearing a seatbelt and his air bags deployed. An autopsy will not be performed. Toxicology results will not be available for several weeks.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Pearce Funeral Home in Pitcairn.
