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.

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.
