Two people fled from police on the Parkway North early Monday.

State police need help identifying a woman who ran across both lanes of the Parkway North Monday after the pickup truck she was in didn’t stop for troopers, according to a news release.

David Bilicic, 40, of Wexford, was arrested after also running from the Dodge pickup, police said. He is facing several charges including fleeing from police, driving under the influence and drug possession.

Troopers attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the truck at 3:50 a.m. near the Perrysville exit, police said. The truck took the exit, continued through a stop sign and re-entered the highway southbound before driving up an embankment near the East Street exit, police said in a news release.

Bilicic fled on foot toward Grizella and Montana streets in Pittsburgh where he was apprehended with the help of Ross Township K9 Neeko. He was being held in the Allegheny County Jail on $25,000 bond. A Sept. 12 preliminary hearing is set.

The female fled into a wooded area in Pittsburgh. Police said she is white with a slender build and shoulder-length blonde hair. She was wearing a pink T-shirt and blue shorts. Anyone with information is asked to call state police at 412-299-1607.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
