A McKeesport man died Saturday night after being hit by a car in the city’s East End and a 19-year-old driver is being questioned in connection with his death.

The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office said John May, 22, was struck near the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Lincoln Way just after 11 p.m. He died a short time later at UPMC McKeesport hospital, officials said.

Allegheny County police said the vehicle then fled the scene. County homicide and collision investigators responded to the scene.

The vehicle believed to have been involved in the crash was located at approximately 4 a.m. Sunday in Turtle Creek Borough, along with a woman who police believe was driving at the time. Her name has not been released.

Police said a decision on charges will be made by the Allegheny County district attorney’s office following the investigation. Any witnesses to the collision are being asked to call the county police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS. Callers may remain anonymous.
