SALTSBURG — One person was killed in a one-car crash Monday night on Route 286 just outside Saltsburg in Conemaugh Township.
“An adult male was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was found to be deceased at the scene,” said Trooper Cliff Greenfield, spokesman for state police at Indiana.
Indiana County Emergency Management Agency said Saltsburg and Tunnelton-Conemaugh Township volunteer fire departments, Indiana state police and Saltsburg’s Lifestat Ambulance were dispatched at 9:50 p.m.
On Facebook, Tunnelton-Conemaugh volunteers said the vehicle was on fire when they arrived.
Greenfield said, the last he had heard Tuesday night, Indiana County Coroner Jerry Overman was still attempting to notify the next-of-kin and so state police have not released the victim’s name.
This is the 10th fatality on Indiana County roadways this year, according to records kept by the Gazette. That compares to six in all of 2018.
