The Allegheny County medical examiner's office identified a 15-year-old boy killed when a car crashed Wednesday night in Collier as Scott Katonka.

He was a student at Chartiers Valley High School, said Kara Droney, a spokeswoman for the school district.

"We extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to the families impacted by last night's tragedy," the district said in a statement posted on its website.

Scott, of Heidelberg, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ms. Droney did not disclose whether the other juveniles in the car were also students there.

Emergency dispatchers received a call about 7 p.m. Wednesday for a report that a car had crashed near Scotts Run and Noblestown roads.

Another person was flown to a local hospital for medical treatment, a dispatch supervisor said. There was no word on that person's condition Thursday.
