ROSS, Pa. --
Wet roads and high speeds may be to blame for a fatal accident in Ross Township.
Police said Tryztian Sweeny, 19, was driving his red 2005 Chevrolet along Three Degree Road Wednesday afternoon.
That's when he crossed the center yellow line and slammed into a black truck.
Sweeny was sent to Allegheny General Hospital, where he died a short time later.
Ross Township police Detective William Barrett said, "Especially in the summertime, you get a little bit of water and the roads become very slick."
Sweeny was a graduate of North Hills High School.
The driver of the truck was treated for minor injuries.
That person's name has not been released.
