OAKLAND: Passenger killed in crash

A female passenger died last night when the car she was riding in crashed into a row of trees near the Schenley Park Golf Course.

Pittsburgh emergency crews responded to the 10:40 p.m. accident, which occurred on Schenley Drive behind the Graduate School of Industrial Administration building on the Carnegie Mellon University campus.

City police Lt. Michael Sippey said the male driver of a white Toyota sports car took a sharp turn at a high rate of speed and careened off the roadway, striking a row of trees, which twisted the car around and left it teetering on a hillside.

The front seat female passenger was killed instantly, police said.

The driver was taken to UPMC Presbyterian, where he was treated for minor injuries.

City EMS district Chief James Holman said the male and female appeared to be in their mid-20s. They were not identified last night.

Investigators were working last night to reconstruct the accident and homicide detectives were investigating whether alcohol played a role in the crash.

DUQUESNE HEIGHTS: Mail fraud charged

A Duquesne Heights man was indicted by a federal grand jury yesterday on 29 counts of wire and mail fraud in connection with a real estate advertising scam.

Michael R. Enelow, 61, placed advertisements in newspapers throughout the United States from 1995 through 2000 offering the opportunity to share in profit from a successful real estate business to anyone who would refer properties to him.

By lying about his financial resources and volume of real estate transactions, according to the indictment, Enelow enticed more than 1,000 respondents to give him up to $1,500 each for the right to join him in the business.

According to the FBI, Enelow depended on the payments to support himself while his true real estate dealings were insignificant.
