A driver traveling the wrong way on Route 28 led to a hit-and-run accident between two other vehicles near the Fox Chapel exit Saturday evening.
According to police, Francis Esposito, 81, of O'Hara Township, used the Exit 8 southbound off ramp to get onto Route 28 from Fox Chapel Road about 5:30 p.m.
Jeffrey E. Torin, 57, of Indiana, was traveling southbound on Route 28 when he noticed Esposito driving toward him.
Torin then slowed down and came to a stop to avoid crashing into Esposito’s car.
A driver behind Torin was unable to bring their pickup truck to a stop and rear-ended Torin’s SUV. The driver of the truck then took the Exit 8 off ramp to Fox Chapel Road, where they crashed over a curb and into the yard of a home a short time later. The unknown driver then ran from the area.
Anyone with information on the driver of the pickup truck is asked to contact Kittanning police.
