Belle Vernon man faces trial in pedestrian's death
A Belle Vernon man has been ordered to stand trial on vehicular homicide, involuntary manslaughter and other charges in the death of a car salesman who was killed while crossing a busy Pittsburgh street.
Pittsburgh police contend Walter Lee Hale, 38, was speeding and driving a vehicle with faulty breaks that had not been inspected at the time of the accident on Nov. 19, 2010.
According to police, Hale failed to round a curve properly before his car hit 50-year-old Theodore Biancucci II, of Moon Township.
Authorities said Biancucci was crossing the street between lots of Rohrich Toyota, where he worked at the time.
