A man accused of nearly hitting a patrolman in Union Township before causing a two-vehicle crash in Monongahela has been jailed on a parole violation, police said.

Timothy John Davis, 42, last known address of 202 Fourth St., Monongahela, allegedly was involved in two incidents while attempting to escape from police before he was found hiding in a Carroll Township residence.

As of presstime, Davis had not been charged in the Friday and Saturday incidents.

Southwest Regional Police Officer John Dytko was conducting a traffic stop on Davis 11:59 p.m. Friday in Union Township when Davis purportedly sped away.

Davis nearly hit Dytko with his vehicle, according to Chief John Hartman, who said the officer was not injured.

Dytko lost sight of Davis' vehicle and decided not to pursue him, Hartman said.

Davis apparently drove down state Route 837 toward New Eagle before crashing head-on into another vehicle at the intersection of Chess and Second streets in Monongahela, city police Chief Brian Tempest said.

Davis jumped out of his vehicle and ran away, Tempest said. The accident report came in around 12:05 a.m. Saturday, according to Tempest.

Three females were in the other vehicle: driver Maylana White, 22, of Monongahela, and passengers Kristen Prece, 19, of Clarksville and Bethanee White, of Jefferson, Pa., Hartman said.

Tempest said the initial report showed one of the females being rushed to Monongahela Valley Hospital in Carroll Township, but hospital spokeswoman Corinne Laboon said none of the females was treated there.

Police said that shortly after the Monongahela crash, they found Davis inside a locked attic at 1164 Country Club Road in Carroll Township. Tempest said the residence belongs to a woman he described as “an acquaintance” of Davis.

He did not identify the woman.

Davis subsequently was transferred to the Washington County Correctional Facility, where he is being held on an adult probation detainer.

Hartman said Southwest Regional is “in the process” of charging Davis for leaving the traffic stop and nearly hitting Dytko. Tempest said Monongahela police are handling the crash investigation.

Police officers from Donora, Carroll Township and Charleroi Regional assisted in the capture of Davis, Tempest said.
