Man allegedly pushed woman into traffic in Bullskin
A Connellsville man is accused of shoving a woman into the path of oncoming traffic during an argument with her Saturday in Bullskin.
State police said Greg Allen Pritts, 49, and an unidentified 37-year-old woman were traveling on Route 982 at Englishman Hill Road, Bullskin, at 10:31 p.m. when they had an argument, then the woman got out of the car.
As she walked along Route 982, Pritts parked his car and started to walk after the woman, police said. Their altercation became physical, police said, and Pritts shoved the woman toward an approaching vehicle, which struck her.
Police said the woman was flown from the scene to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh. Her condition could not be determined Monday.
Pritts was arraigned in night court before Redstone District Judge Michael Defino Jr. on charges of aggravated assault, simple assault, harassment and driving while under the influence.
He was committed to the Fayette County jail in lieu of $35,000 straight bond and faces a preliminary hearing Thursday before Connellsville District Judge Ronald Haggerty Jr.
