A teenager who was killed in a two-car crash has been identified.
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner said Rikki Fleming, 18, of Etna, died in the crash that occurred at 11:16 p.m. Saturday on Route 28 in Sharpsburg.
The road was shut down briefly between the 40th Street and Highland Park bridges following the accident.
State police at Kittanning said Ms. Fleming was operating one of the vehicles involved in the accident and Jared Schillinger, 28, of Cheswick was driving the other vehicle. He was not hurt, nor were two passengers in his vehicle.
Police said Ms. Fleming was northbound on Route 28 when Mr. Schillinger's vehicle crashed into the back of Ms. Fleming's. The impact caused her vehicle to go off the road and roll over. Although police indicated she was wearing a seat belt, she was ejected from the vehicle.
Police said charges are pending the results of a blood test.
Correction, posted Feb. 17, 2013: In an earlier version of this story, it was incorrectly reported that police had filed charges.
