A 19-year-old from Indiana County died following a crash Monday morning in St. Clair Township.

Hunter A. Figard of West Wheatfield Township was identified as the victim of a one-vehicle crash on Route 711 at Robb Road, according to the Westmoreland County coroner’s office.

Figard reportedly was unresponsive in an overturned 2005 Chevy truck when firefighters got to the crash, the dispatcher said. The crash was reported at 7:48 a.m. near New Florence, and investigators said Figard’s truck crossed the center line while headed south on Route 711, left the eastern side of the road and struck a tree.

Figard died of multiple blunt-force injuries, according to the coroner’s report. A 17-year-old male passenger from New Florence was taken to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center, according to state police.

It was the second fatal crash on Westmoreland County roads in 12 hours.

Two people died Sunday night after a car overturned in Hempfield . Marc F. Delissio, 33, of Penn Township, and Kirstin R. Kerrigan, 22, of Arona, died after the Dodge Charger being driven by Delissio went off of Baughman Hollow Road at 8:30 p.m., hit several trees and overturned, according to investigators.

A second female passenger was seriously injured and taken to a hospital.

Delissio died at the scene. Kerrigan was pronounced dead at Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital. Both were employees of The Rialto in Greensburg.
