Charges have been filed against a Carroll Township man accused of nearly hitting a patrolman and causing a two-vehicle crash last weekend.

Timothy John Davis, 42, of 1164 Country Club Road, was charged by Southwest Regional Police with aggravated assault, fleeing or attempting to elude police, reckless driving and several traffic offenses.

Davis nearly struck Southwest Regional police Officer John Dytko with his vehicle as he sped away from a traffic stop shortly before midnight March 8 in Union Township, police said. Dytko was not injured.

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 about 12:05 a.m. March 9, Monongahela police said. Three women were in the other vehicle, one of whom reportedly suffered injuries.

Police said Davis was found a short time later inside a locked attic at his current address.

Davis was taken to the Washington County Correctional Facility, where he is still being held on an adult probation detainer. A preliminary hearing on the new charges will be held before Magisterial District Judge James Ellis in McMurray.

Monongahela police are handling the crash investigation.
