2 killed in head-on crash in White Oak


WHITE OAK, Pa. -  Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a head-on crash killed a man and woman near Pittsburgh.   

Police in White Oak say a sedan heading for McKeesport crossed the center line and collided with another sedan heading toward North Versailles Township shortly before 6:30 p.m. Thursday.   

The Allegheny County medical examiner's office said 32-year-old Michael Bakosh of Baldwin and 45-year-old Carrie Thomas of McKeesport were pronounced dead shortly afterward in the emergency room of UPMC McKeesport. 

 Chief Lou Bender told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the roadways were wet, but investigators don't believe weather was a factor in the crash. The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
