A White Oak man died Tuesday night after being hit by a car on Route 48, police said, and the driver of the car that struck him did not stop.
Craig Peden, 81, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Allegheny County police said Peden was walking along Jacks Run Road just north of the entrance to White Oak Park when the collision occurred just before 7:30 p.m.
A few minutes later, on Route 48 between Cool Springs Road and Ripple Road, White Oak police stopped a Ford sedan that was believed to have been involved in the incident, county police said.
The driver, a 65-year-old man whose name was not released by police, was questioned, police said.
Allegheny County detectives and an accident reconstruction team are investigating. Police asked anyone with information or who may have seen the incident to call the County Police Tip Line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous.
