A car crashed into a Fayette County creek Thursday afternoon, claiming the life of a 60-year-old motorist.
Frank Dodson was taken from the scene in Georges Township to the Uniontown Hospital emergency room, where he was pronounced dead at 5:17 p.m., according to Fayette County Coroner Dr. Phillip E. Reilly.
The victim’s hometown wasn’t available. An autopsy is planned.

A passenger suffered moderate injuries and also was taken to the hospital, police said.
