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.
