Charges have been filed against a man for a fatal head-on crash early Saturday morning in East Pittsburgh, according to a criminal complaint obtained Sunday by Channel 11 News.
The crash was reported shortly after 3 a.m. Saturday near the Westinghouse Bridge, killing 44-year-old Olin Simpson, of McKeesport.
Officials said Simpson was driving one of the vehicles that was involved. Two people in the other vehicle, the driver and a passenger, attempted to run from the scene after the crash, but were taken into custody and transported to a hospital.
According to the criminal complaint, the driver who tried to flee, 28-year-old Kevin Paul, smelled of alcohol and his eyes were “bloodshot and glassy.”
Paul faces a list of charges, including homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, involuntary manslaughter, recklessly endangering another person and carrying a firearm without a license.
Channel 11's Mike Holden reported Saturday that charges are pending against Paul's passenger.
