Coroner confirms cause of death for Fayette County woman hit by truck

A woman struck over the weekend by a pickup near Uniontown died from her injuries, according to the Fayette County Coroner's Office.

Christina Dawn Glisan, 45, died of multiple blunt-force injuries, the coroner's office said.

State police in Uniontown arrested David Lincoln Lee, 47, of Lemont Furnace. He is charged with homicide by vehicle, hit and run, driving under the influence of alcohol, careless driving, reckless driving and driving at an unsafe speed.

Troopers said Lee struck Glisan around 12:15 a.m. Saturday in the 900 block of North Gallatin Avenue in North Union Township, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed before District Judge Wendy Dennis.

Lee was driving a 2001 Ford F-150 pickup past Smitty's Bar when he struck Glisan, who was on foot, police said.

She was pronounced dead at the scene around 2 a.m., Coroner Dr. Phillip E. Reilly said.

Troopers allege Lee fled the scene after the accident but said they located his damaged truck an hour later less than two miles away on the 200 block of Youngstown Road. Troopers used surveillance footage from an outdoor security camera at the bar to identify Lee's truck, the affidavit stated.

Uniontown District Judge Michael Metros arraigned Lee on Saturday and ordered him held in the county jail on $250,000 bond.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled Nov. 14 before North Union District Judge Wendy Dennis.

State police said the investigation is ongoing.

Donald R. Crawford Funeral Home in Hopwood is in charge of Glisan's arrangements.
