Authorities identify Monroeville man killed in Parkway East crash
A Monroeville man died early Sunday from injuries suffered in a crash along the Parkway East, authorities said.
Joshua W. Walsh, 31, was in a crash Saturday near the Swissvale on-ramp on the outbound side of the highway, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office. The office did not know what time the crash happened.
Paramedics took Walsh to Forbes Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:41 a.m., authorities said.
No further information was immediately available.
Walsh’s family is looking for a Celtic cross that belonged to his mother, Sallie Walsh, and that he wore for years after she gave it to him.
They’ve searched around the wreck site and asked whether it was found by medics or the medical examiner’s office, all to no avail.
“That means the world to her,” Colleen Reilly, Walsh’s step-mother, said of the necklace. “She gave him that cross 10 to 15 years ago. He basically wore it everyday since.”
