On Thursday, police and paramedics were called to the 3000 block of Jacks Run Road for a crash with entrapment.

Officials found 59-year-old Donald Pivirotto entrapped in a Nissan Sentra. They attempted life-saving measures, but the man died at the scene.

An investigation by the Allegheny County police revealed a 27-year-old woman was behind the wheel of an Isuzu box truck that was traveling east on the road.

Police say the truck swerved into oncoming traffic to avoid a car making a left turn and collided head-on with the victim's car.

"At this time, it is unclear if the Isuzu driver was distracted or if the vehicle in front of her stopped suddenly," the county said in a release.

The results of the investigation will be turned over to the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office to see if charges are warranted.
