Cait Tracy was injured in a car crash Sunday night that claimed the lives of two other passengers.

Local businesses have joined a growing effort to raise money for Cait Tracy, who was injured in a car crash Sunday night that killed two other passengers.

What started as a fundraiser at the Hempfield location of Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard has spread to almost 40 restaurants and businesses, all raising money to help Tracy — who was listed in critical condition after the crash — and her family.

Kristin R. Kerrigan, 22, of Arona and Marc F. Delissio, 33, of Penn Township died Sunday after their car went off Baughman Hollow Road, struck multiple trees and overturned. State police responded around 8:30 p.m.

Tracy, who was not identified at the time of the crash, was taken to a Pittsburgh-area hospital.

According to the Downtown Greensburg Project, a Greensburg promotion website, community donation buckets were distributed to the businesses. Other businesses interested in participating can email [email protected]

Tracy works as a bar manager at Rialto, a Greensburg bar and restaurant on West Otterman Street. Kerrigan worked at the business as a bartender, and Delissio worked security there.

Rialto plans to donate tips from Thursday’s karaoke night to Tracy, the mother of two young boys.

According to the Westmoreland County Coroner’s Office, Delissio was driving a 2018 Dodge Charger west on Baughman Hollow Road when it crossed the center line into the opposite lane, eventually overturning. Delissio died at the scene. Kerrigan died at Excela Health Westmoreland Hospital in Greensburg.

State police will not release more information until toxicology and accident reconstruction reports are received, which could take several weeks, state police Trooper Stephen Limani said.

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.
