A Mercer County man was killed and a passenger was injured when they both were ejected from a vehicle on Interstate 80 in Shenango, Mercer County, at 3:25 p.m. Saturday.
State police at Mercer said that neither Karl Magee, 44, of Sharon, nor his passenger, Darren G. Millhoff, 35, of Sharon, was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. Mr. Millhoff's injuries were described as moderate.
Police said Mr. Magee was westbound on the interstate when his vehicle "drifted into the right lane" as he was initiating a passing movement, making contact with the left rear tire of another vehicle.
Mr. Magee's vehicle careened down an embankment then rolled over. Both men were ejected through a right side door that had been forced open by the impact with the embankment, police said.
Mr. Magee was pronounced dead at the scene.
No other information was available.
