Woman, two boys injured in Washington County crash
A drug- and booze-fueled car crash in Washington County injured two children whom paramedics flew to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh for treatment, state police said Sunday.
The driver of the car, Stacy Lee Skariot, 31, had moderate injuries from the Saturday night wreck and was flowed to UPMC Presbyterian, state police said. Skariot was driving west on U.S. Route 40 in Canton when she swerved onto the shoulder, struck a guardrail and a tree and then rolled down a hill, according to an incident report.
Skariot was under the influence of narcotics and alcohol, the report says. Police found an open bottle of Bud Light and several other bottles. They also found three prescription bottles with 113 Xanax tablets and 14 Ambien tablets scattered throughout the vehicle, the report says.
The report doesn't say where Skariot lives or her relationship to the two boys, who are not named in the report. She was not wearing a seat belt, and the boys, 8 and 9 years old, were not in their required booster seats, the report says.

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 â 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.

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.
