WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- A 22-year-old man killed in a single-car crash Wednesday in St. Thomas Township was looking forward to the birth of his first child this summer, his father-in-law, state Sen. Terry Punt, said Thursday.
Thriften Darcey Barlup, of 1614 Wenger Way in Chambersburg, Pa., was killed when the car he was driving ran off Hade Road, sheared a utility pole in half and crashed into a house, Pennsylvania State Police said. Speed and wet road conditions contributed to the accident, police said.
"We're just very devastated, Thriften's family and (his wife) Erin's family," Punt said.
Barlup was the son of Timothy A. Barlup of Waynesboro, and Kiwi K. (Williams) McIntyre of Smithsburg, according to his obituary.
"He was looking so forward to being a father, as I was to being a grandfather," Punt said. Barlup recently had finished the nursery for the baby, who is due in July and will be named Phoenix R. Barlup, Punt said.
