A Connellsville man was killed and a woman was injured when a car they were riding in crashed and caught fire Sunday night in Fayette County.
Andrew K. Vrabel, 25, was a passenger in a Dodge Neon when the driver, Shawna M. Courie, 33, of Vanderbilt, failed to complete a left turn on Buena Vista Road in Franklin. The car left the road shortly before 9:45 p.m., according to a news release from Pennsylvania State Police in the Belle Vernon barracks.
The car went over a culvert, before crashing into a tree, state police said. Mr. Vrabel, who was wearing a seatbelt, was unable to get out of the vehicle as it caught fire.
Ms. Courie was flown to UPMC Presbyterian. She was found lying in the southbound lane of Buena Vista Road, but the nature of her injuries was not immediately clear, state police said.neigh_south
