    NORTH VERSAILLES, Pa. - A man who was walking to work was hit and killed by a car Tuesday morning in North Versailles, officials said.

    Allegheny County police said the 60-year-old man was hit just after 6 a.m. along Route 48/Mosside Boulevard, near Aldi Drive. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.

    The man, Kevin Kolesar, was walking to Denny's, where he worked as a dishwasher. His co-workers said they knew something was wrong when he never showed up for his shift because he is usually there an hour early.

    Mosside Boulevard was closed in both directions between Wall Avenue and Route 30/Lincoln Highway for several hours.

    Allegheny County police are investigating the crash.
