WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A 31-year-old steam fitter working on the new ice rink being built near here was killed late Thursday night when he walked in front of a car on West Main Street in Waynesboro, according to Waynesboro police.

The victim was identified as Marc A. Kyle of Bridgeport, N.Y. He was pronounced dead as a result of multiple trauma by Franklin County Coroner Kenneth L. Peiffer Jr.

The accident occurred at 11:15 p.m. in the 200 block of West Main Street, police said.

The driver of the car, a 1984 Chevrolet Cavalier, was identified as Charles Valez, 42, of Waynesboro. Police said no arrests have been made. The case is still under investigation, police said.


According to police, Kyle ran out from the south side of West Main Street and into the path of Valez's car.

Kyle was married but had no children. According to his wife, the couple was married for a year. He was born in Syracuse about 10 miles from Bridgeport, she said.

Kyle was a union tradesman and had only been working in Waynesboro for about a week-and-a-half, she said.

The $2.7 million rink, to be called the Doris I. Billow Ice Arena after a Waynesboro area school teacher who left $500,000 in her will toward its construction, will open in December. It's being built on Pa. 16 west of Waynesboro.
