The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's office has identified the driver killed in a high-speed crash in West Mifflin Monday.

Christopher Buzzatto, 24, of White Oak, died of burns and smoke inhalation sustained in a single-vehicle crash early Monday along Route 837 in West Mifflin, according to the autopsy report.

The medical examiner's office had to use dental records to identify the victim due to the severity of his burns.

Investigators said high speed was a factor in the accident, which occurred following a police pursuit that began on Lebanon Church Road and continued on Camp Hollow and Lebanon School roads.

Buzzatto was driving a Cadillac CTS-V.
