Pittsburgh woman dies after Saturday night crash in Baldwin

| Sunday, December 9, 2018 10:42 a.m.

A woman driving a Cadillac sedan in Baldwin died after crashing into a Jeep Saturday night, Allegheny County police said Sunday.

Chryse Heuler, 59, of Pittsburgh, died just after 11 p.m. at UPMC Mercy hospital after the crash, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office.

She was traveling east along Whitehall Prospect Road “when she lost control and crossed the center line striking a Jeep,” said Lt. Andrew Schurman in a news release.

The crash happened at the intersection of Streets Run and Whitehall Prospect roads at 8 p.m. Saturday.

In the Jeep were three children, ages 12, 9 and 1, and the driver — a 42-year-old man. The driver was not immediately identified. He, along with the children, were all treated and released from the hospital.

“The driver of the Jeep saw the Cadillac approaching and was able to take evasive action,” Schurman said. “Alcohol and weather are believed to have contributed to the at-fault driver’s actions.”

County police continue to investigate.

Anyone with information concerning the crash is asked to call the Allegheny County Police Tipline at 1-833-255-8477.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
