Workers at Hempfield Rita’s donating tips to woman injured in deadly weekend crash
Employees at the Hempfield location of Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard are raising money for a woman who survived a Sunday car crash that claimed the lives of two people.
According to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page, Cait Tracy is fighting for her life after the crash that killed Kristin R. Kerrigan, 22, of Arona and Marc F. Delissio, 33, of Penn Township. According to state police, who responded around 8:30 p.m. to 1244 Baughman Hollow Road, their car went off the road, struck multiple trees and overturned.
Tracy, who was not identified at the time of the crash, was taken to a Pittsburgh-area hospital where she was listed in critical condition.
Tracy has two young sons, the Facebook post states. An employee at Rialto, a Greensburg bar and restaurant on West Otterman Street, confirmed Tracy was a bar manager. Kerrigan worked at the business as a bartender, and Delissio worked security there.
Employees at the Rita’s location at Eastgate Shopping Center on Route 30 are donating tips for May to Tracy, who is related to one of the Rita’s workers, and her family. More than $300 has been raised so far, said Meghan Hirak, a shift supervisor at Rita’s.
“Cait is still fighting,” the Facebook post reads. “We want to help her with any medical costs and anything her two young sons should need.”
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.
Delissio will be buried Thursday at Twin Valley Memorial Park in Greensburg. The funeral for Kerrigan will be held 11 a.m. Friday.
