Jeannette man facing additional charges after hit-and-run crash

A Jeannette man accused in a hit-and-run crash in Rostraver Township earlier this month now is charged with possession of a stolen gun after police discovered .40 caliber handgun inside his impounded vehicle.

Martell Crosby, 22, was charged Tuesday with receiving stolen property, hit and run, driving on a suspended license, fleeing the scene of an accident, failing to stop at a stop sign and failing to stop and render aid after the June 14 accident in the village of Pricedale.

Rostraver Sgt. Raymond Dugan alleges that Crosby was stopped in a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am shortly after the accident at the corner of Main and Carson streets, where he is accused of striking a vehicle operated by Jacob Zadrozny.

Dugan reported that police impounded Crosby’s car after learning he was driving on a suspended license. A search of the vehicle turned up the handgun, which had been reported stolen.

The complaints were mailed to Crosby via summons and a preliminary hearing will be scheduled.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
