Penn Hills officials investigate the scene of a fatal crash between a pedestrian and a car on Wednesday, June 12.

A 66-year-old man who died after being hit by a Toyota Corolla in Penn Hills has been identified.

Joseph W. Picard was killed June 12 while crossing Saltsburg Road, the Allegheny County Coroner’s Office confirmed. The crash happened shortly before 1:30 p.m. in the 7000 block of Saltsburg Road, just south of Twin Oak Drive, police said.

Medics and police arrived to find the Pittsburgh resident’s body lying on the two-way street between a car wash and the McDonald’s in the Alcoma Plaza shopping center.

The crash shut down Saltsburg Road between Alcoma Plaza and Twin Oak Drive for several hours. The driver of the Toyota Corolla remained on scene.

Allegheny County police are investigating.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
