A Norwin High School senior died Saturday from injuries he sustained in a crash after a vehicle went over a hillside and overturned along Broadway Street in North Huntingdon, authorities said.

The victim, Logan Dyson, 18, of North Irwin was well-liked by his peers at Norwin and at Central Westmoreland Career and Technology Center in New Stanton, high school Principal Michael Choby said in a statement Monday.

“All members of our Norwin community are saddened by this loss,” Choby said.

The school district arranged for a counseling team to be at school for students who expressed a need during the day. Included in this team were counselors, nurses, school psychologists and the student assistance program team, Choby said.

Westmoreland City firefighters responded to the accident about 11:30 p.m. Friday. They had to use ropes to get to the vehicle after it went over an embankment.

Neither township police Lt. Rod Mahinske nor fire Chief Michael F. Doshen could be reached for comment.

Information from the Allegheny County Medical Examiner was not available.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

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.
