A head-on crash in Pennsylvania's O'Hara Township left a 31-year-old man dead on Feb. 24, 2013. The driver who caused the accident pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide associated with drunk driving on Feb. 25. His attorney said the driver wished to spare the dead man's family from going through a lengthy trial.
The accident occurred on Pennsylvania Route 28 around 12:30 a.m. when the 64-year-old Penns Hill resident was heading south on northbound 28 starting at the Highland Park exit. The driver continued traveling southbound and was seen by another motorist as he narrowly missed hitting his vehicle. The driver of that vehicle pulled off the roadway to avoid an accident. A third vehicle was unable to avoid being hit. Black box data showed the wrong-way driver slowed his vehicle from 52 to 33 mph. The driver of the vehicle hit by the wrong-way driver, a resident of Indiana County, died from injuries suffered in the crash.
