1 killed, 2 injured in North Huntingdon crash that closed Route 30 for hours
A North Huntingdon man was killed in a three-vehicle crash Thursday along Route 30 in North Huntingdon.
Michael Iannace, 57, was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee that was involved in a head-on crash in the westbound lanes.
The crash happened after a car traveling east along Route 30 changed lanes and hit a Jeep Wrangler Sport, which then moved into the westbound lanes and collided with Iannace’s vehicle, according to the Westmoreland County Coroner’s report.
Iannace, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene. A ruling on the cause and manner of his death were pending results of an autopsy and toxicology tests.
North Huntingdon police said two other motorists were taken to area trauma centers — including a female passenger with serious injuries who was freed from Iannace’s vehicle and the driver of another vehicle. Names and conditions of those injured weren’t available.
The wreck happened at 6:43 p.m. near Cherry Lane, about a quarter-mile west of Spitz Auto Parts. Traffic on the highway was shut down for about five hours while police investigated and emergency crews assisted.
