Woman, 24, killed in Wilkinsburg rollover crash



PITTSBURGH - A 24-year-old woman was killed in a rollover crash in Wilkinsburg early Wednesday morning.

Investigators told Channel 11 News that the driver lost control of an SUV and flipped it over an embankment.

“The vehicle was northbound on Robinson Boulevard and lost control, striking a pole, leaving the road and flipping over an embankment,” Allegheny County Police Lt. Andrew Schurman said.

Police said a passenger in the car, Christina Graham-Pinkney, was pronounced dead at the scene less than 2 miles from her home.

The driver and another passenger, police said, were not hurt. The men were taken into custody for questioning, said investigators.

Officers said speed and alcohol are being investigated as possible factors in the crash.

“DUI is obviously one of the things we will be concerned about and checking with our lab on,” Schurman said.

Charges are pending the results of toxicology and blood tests.
