Indiana County man killed in crash

An Indiana County man is dead after his vehicle was struck Friday morning by a tractor-trailer driven by Cambria County man in Indiana County.

Ryan S. Decker, 21, of Armaugh, was killed while driving a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier along Route 56 in East Wheatfield Township, according to a state police news release.

State police at Indiana said Joshua J. Swope, 32, of Northern Cambria was driving a 2011 Freightliner Triaxle west on the road, when his vehicle traveled into the oncoming lane.

Swope’s vehicle then struck Decker’s car, forcing it off the road and onto a shoulder.

Decker was killed in the crash, and both vehicles sustained disabling damage.

Police said an investigation continues.
