A 23-year-old man was killed Sunday morning after the vehicle in which he was a passenger left Lysle Boulevard and crashed into an apartment building Downtown.

Allegheny County police are investigating the accident that also sent another 23-year-old man to the hospital, where he was in stable condition on Friday afternoon. The 24-year-old driver was treated at the hospital and released, county police Sgt. Venerando Costa said.

Police did not release the names of the victims.

McKeesport police, firefighters and paramedics were dispatched just before 7 a.m. to the intersection of Lysle Boulevard and Center Street.

McKeesport fire Capt. Jim Shields said a Kia Sportage SUV with three occupants collided with the front of Fifth Avenue Commons at 1205 Fifth Ave.

Emergency personnel said it was unclear whether the occupants were wearing seat belts but all three were freed from the vehicle without incident.

The front-seat passenger was taken to a hospital emergency room where he died from his injuries, Costa said.

A preliminary investigation by the Allegheny County police Collision Reconstruction Unit determined the car was traveling westbound when it struck the building, Costa said.

No charges have been filed, but Costa said police will turn over any findings to the Allegheny County District Attorney's office following the completion of the investigation.

Damage to the building was confined mostly to the facade, Shields said, and no evacuation of residents was necessary. McKeesport Ambulance Rescue Service assisted at the scene and McKeesport public works employees helped with traffic control.

Lysle Boulevard was closed until approximately 9 a.m. as police investigated.

Anyone who may have witnessed the wreck or has any additional information is being asked to contact the Allegheny County police at (833) ALL-TIPS (255-8477). Callers may remain anonymous.

County police also may be reached via Twitter and Facebook.
