    Updated:

    EAST FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Authorities have identified the 37-year-old man who was killed Thursday afternoon when a coal truck rolled on top of a passenger car in Armstrong County.

    Investigators told Channel 11 News that the accident occurred on Route 422 near the Armstrong County Memorial Hospital exit.

    According to Armstrong County Coroner Brian Myers, Daniel Seitz was driving east on Route 422 when his 1993 Toyota Corolla crossed in front of a GMC Terrain, causing the Terrain to hit the brakes.

    At that time, a tri-axle behind the Terrain tried to swerve, but eventually rolled on top of Seitz’s vehicle.

    Myers said Seitz was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy will be performed Friday.

    All of Route 422 in that area was shut down while crews cleared the scene. Channel 11's Pamela Osborne reported the road reopened around 6:30 p.m.
