A 25-year-old man was killed and a 33-year-old woman was severely injured in a crash in Fayette County early Monday morning.
Investigators said the crash happened on Buena Vista Road in Vanderbilt.
According to police, Shawna Courie was traveling north on the road when she lost control as she was attempting to navigate her car around a curve and hit a tree. The impact from the crash caused the vehicle to catch on fire, police said.
Courie was flown to UPMC Presbyterian hospital with serious injuries. The medical examiner said Andre Vrabel, 25, was killed.
“She was actually located outside the vehicle when they responded. After the vehicle hit the tree it caught fire. The male was still inside the vehicle,” Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Stefani Plume said.
