Police: Plum man dies after being hit by pickup in Murrysville parking lot
A Plum man was killed Wednesday after being hit by a pickup truck in a Murrysville parking lot, said Police Capt. Chuck Tappe.
Homer Luzader, 80, was walking at 6:15 a.m. from a nearby parking lot into a Dunkin Donuts store when he was hit by the truck as it came around a bend in the drive-thru lane, Tappe said. The low-speed collision knocked Luzader to the ground, causing a head injury.
He was taken to AHN Forbes Hospital in Monroeville where he was pronounced dead later in the morning.
Investigators took blood from the pickup driver, Robert Tumulty, 30, of Moon, who stayed on the scene and was cooperative. Police don’t believe drugs or alcohol played a factor in the crash. The truck belonged to Dominion Peoples, Tappe said.
Police are reviewing video surveillance and the crash is being reconstructed.
