Allegheny County police are investigating a head-on collision Tuesday that killed a 65-year-old driver.

Police said the accident happened just before 3:30 p.m. under the George Westinghouse Bridge in North Versailles Twp.

Investigators said an SUV driven by a 19-year-old man was traveling west on East Pittsburgh-McKeesport Boulevard, toward East Pittsburgh, when it crossed the center line and collided with an eastbound passenger van.

The driver of the van was taken to a hospital in critical condition where he was pronounced dead, police said. Investigators have not yet released the victim’s name.

The driver of the SUV and a 16-year-old female passenger were also transported to hospitals for treatment of minor injuries, police said. Their names also were not released by police.

Township police requested the assistance of Allegheny County homicide detectives and the county police Collision Reconstruction Unit.

County police said investigators believe the SUV’s driver lost control of the vehicle prior to the accident. The investigation into the collision is ongoing, and the facts will be presented to the district attorney’s office for review, police said.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is being asked to call the Allegheny County police tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477); callers can remain anonymous.
