A Washington County man died late Thursday night when the vehicle he was driving crashed into a gasoline tanker truck on Interstate 79 near the Bridgeville rest stop, an Allegheny County emergency dispatcher said.
Bradford Carter, 40, of Eighty Four, died at the scene of the crash, according to the Allegheny County medical examiner's office.
The crash happened shortly after 11 p.m. Thursday when the vehicle and tanker collided in the southbound lanes of I-79 in South Fayette.
State police shut down the roadway and hazardous material crews were called to the scene for the possibility of leaking fuel. Police were detouring cars onto the Bridgeville exit to avoid the crash scene.
