The son of a prominent judge and cardiologist has died as a result of injuries he received in what was described by authorities as a "pedestrian accident" early Saturday in Oakland.
Cody Barrasse, son of Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas Judge Michael J. Barrasse and Scranton cardiologist Linda D'Andrea Barrasse, died today at UPMC Presbyterian, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner.
Cody Barrasse, 22, of Moosic, was a senior at Penn State University. An aunt indicated in an email that he was a finance major who was about to graduate from Penn State with honors. Moosic is a borough in Lackawanna County, located near Scranton.
A spokesman for the medical examiner said Cody Barasse was struck by a vehicle in the 3800 block of Bates Street in Oakland at 2:13 a.m. Saturday. He was pronounced dead at 4:46 a.m. today at the hospital. His aunt said he was a victim of a hit-and-run.
Pittsburgh police are investigating the incident.
