Car Crash Kills Police Officer in Washington County

Posted on Nov 06, 2008

On November 4, 2008 two people were killed in a crash on Interstate 70 in Washington County.  One person killed was an off duty South Strabane police Officer, Nathaniel Burnfield.  He was killed while trying to remove debris from the road.  Ronald Kennedy of Connellsville was also killed.

State police said a tire had come off a pickup truck in the westbound lanes and a double tractor-trailer belonging to UPS struck the tire a short time later.

State police said the accident happened when Mr. Burnfield tried to retrieve the tire that was lying on the highway.  Mr. Kennedy swerved his dump truck to avoid the officer's car but instead struck Burnfield.  Kennedy's truck then hit another truck that was on the side of the road.
