Somerset, PA – Dylan Corey Killed in Fatal Pedestrian Crash on Tayman Rd
Somerset, PA (August 6, 2022) – A man was killed in a fatal pedestrian accident on a roadway in Somerset on Thursday, August 4.
State Police confirmed that the accident took place at 1000 Tayman Road. A Ford F-250 pickup truck was traveling north on New Centerville Road when the vehicle struck a Ram 2500 on the driver’s side. After the collision, one of the vehicles slammed into a pedestrian who was on the side of the road, carrying him along with the F-250 on the side of the road.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were dispatched to the scene of the crash to help those in need. The pedestrian, who has since been identified as 31-year-old Dylan Corey, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to severe trauma. It is not known if anyone else was hurt in the crash.
Due to the severity of the accident, a large portion of the roadway was blocked in the area for some time. This led to delays and police urged those traveling through to avoid the area until the scene was cleared.
No further details have been released but the investigation into the collision remains ongoing.
We offer our warmest thoughts to the family and friends of the victim whose life was taken in this accident.
