Victim identified in fatal Indiana County crash
An Armstrong County man was killed in a two-vehicle crash Wednesday morning in Indiana County, according to investigators.
Douglas Chris Craig, 55, of South Bend Township, was driving east on Route 422 in Armstrong Township just before 4 a.m. when a Ford box truck crossed the center line and hit the victim’s Ford Fiesta head on, state police and Coroner Jerry Overman Jr. said.
Craig was extricated from his heavily-damaged vehicle by firefighters. He donated body tissue, the coroner said. An autopsy was performed Wednesday and a cause and manner of death is pending toxicology test results.
It was unclear if the truck driver, a 26-year-old Altoona man, was injured. Troopers did not identify him in the release. State police closed Route 422 near Cunningham Road Wednesday morning for crash reconstruction.
