Police: Car suspected in crash that killed Penn Hills man found in McKeesport
Allegheny County police said they found the car they believe hit and killed a Penn Hills man in April.
Police said Friday they received a tip the car was in the parking lot of the Hi View Gardens housing complex in McKeesport.
They intend to release more information later Friday.
Joseph Morris, 51, was found dead by police along Universal Road in Penn Hills after Allegheny County 911 received multiple calls about the crash around 9:30 p.m. April 28. Police believe Morris was dragged for a half-mile to Universal Road after being hit on Hershey Road.
Detectives said Thursday the vehicle used was likely a silver blue 2002 Saturn SL or SL2 but did not say if the car found Friday was that year and make. Police were able to identify the suspected car by scanning surveillance footage and recovering parts at the scene.
Police have yet to identify any suspects.
A $13,000 reward is being offered to anyone who provided investigators with information leading to the prosecution of the responsible driver.
Anyone with information about the suspected vehicle or a local auto service center that may have made repairs to the car is asked to call the Allegheny County Police Tip Line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous.
