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.
