McKeesport solicitor Elash charged with DUI after crash
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
By Moriah Balingit, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The McKeesport solicitor who was badly hurt in a car crash following the mayor's inaugural ball declined comment today after being charged Friday with driving under the influence in connection with the accident.
John Jason Elash, 40, also faces summary offenses of speeding and driving without financial responsibility in connection with the crash, which occurred Jan. 22.
A blood test showed Mr. Elash had a blood alcohol content of .196, more than twice the legal limit, at the time of the crash, according to a criminal complaint.
He said today that he had not received any notification of the charges and had no comment.
Chief Bryan Washowich said Mr. Elash, seen the night before at an inaugural ball for Mayor Mike Cherepko, was headed south on Route 48 in his 2004 Cadillac Escalade at around 1:30 a.m. when he "failed to negotiate the bend" in the 700 block.
He veered off the street, crashing into a building about 100 feet off of the roadway. A passerby called 911 after watching Mr. Elash drive into the building and told dispatchers that Mr. Elash was bleeding from the head. He was flown to UPMC Mercy.
He remained in the hospital until at least Jan. 23, according to an online docket entry that indicated he had to reschedule a court date for a private client in a federal suit.
Mr. Elash will be charged by mail summons.

Criminal Docket lists MPD Officer Joesph Stepansky.

Rumor had it that other police departaments were on the scene but were told their services were not required. The local news first reported that the driver was missing and could not be found. And, MPD was not looking for the missing driver.

Later the local news identified the driver and said he was taken to a hospital and addmitted he was drinking.

You be the judge on this one. Nice attempt at a cover up that seemed to backfire.

Doctor Spin Merchant concocted the PR remedy for this one. But the patient failed to respond completely to the treatments. There was a reaction to the treatments that caused Topix's and the public's never ending attention. Yes, it backfired.

You are too 2 2 stupid. If the prothronotary cleans your financial clock ever time you access it, why do you love the financial pain.

I think you are telling a fib to discourage anyone from getting the truth first hand.

Why? Because he worked on the clock and on taxpayer's funds to advance the political agenda of Mr. Brewster, Mr. Cherepko and other MDC endorsed candidates.
He also is friends with councilmen and has done free legal work for elected officials and other city employees. This is the situation that got Veon, DeWeese and Orie in jail! Where are you AG Linda Kelly?
Why did Keith Soles orignally want to dismiss him and now they are tight friends??????????

I am a city employee... and Mr Elash was well within his right to campaign for anyone he wished. He was NOT a salaried or Hourly employee of the city. HE was a 1099 sub contracted employee who had the ability to peform his duties to us on any time schedule he chose. He is still not accountable to the city for punching the clock. He has the flexiblity to do any work he wants during any day he chooses. He submits billable hours to the city and is accountable for his duties, not when he does them. His issue would only be if he was billing the city for hours he was working on a campaign, which did not happen. Get over your hate for this guy. He is doing a great job and The Mayor is very pleased with him. Plus, to equate this to the scandals of the State Government are way diffferent. Those regulations do not apply to McKeesport, only to those serving ina state government capacity. To clear this up for you.. Mr Elash would have had to be on the direct payroll of Senator Brewster and working for him on the clock while and then use state resources and time to run his campaign. That is what happened to Veon and his cronies. Not McKeesport.. 2 totally different situations. There are no laws to prevent a private contractor from doing anything he wants.

Not all accidents thoroughly investigated by police
On behalf of Caroselli Beachler McTiernan & Conboy, L.L.C. posted in Car Accidents on Monday, February 6, 2012
http://www.pennpersonalinjuryattorneys.com/20...
The original investigation by police of a Pennsylvania car accident involving a solicitor representing a local city council is being scrutinized. The reason for the scrutiny is because the police may not actually have thoroughly investigated whether impairment was a factor in the cause of the crash.
The city's chief-of-police has reported that the solicitor had just attended a celebration in honor of the city's mayor. The solicitor was then driving home at 1:30 in the morning when he failed to negotiate a turn and crashed into a building that was about 100 feet away from the road. The driver was bleeding from the head and was flown to a nearby hospital where he remained for at least another day.
The police chief stated that patches of ice on the road may have been a factor in this accident. He also claimed that investigation of this matter was still in progress.
What the police chief failed to say was whether any sobriety tests, toxicology screens or blood tests were conducted. If there was no administration of such tests, it's difficult to believe that any charges that the driver was impaired at the time of the accident could survive short of the solicitor admitting on the stand that he was under the influence of some substance when the accident occurred.
Fortunately, no other individual was injured in this accident. However, this circumstance does demonstrate that local authorities cannot always be depended upon in order to make a determination as to how an accident actually occurred. What if another individual is injured and no determinations are made by investigating officers as to whether the other driver was actually at fault for the accident? Sometimes only individual representation from an attorney or law firm can provide the additional resources needed so that an investigation of how the accident occurred was thoroughly conducted.
Finding someone criminally liable is one matter. Determining the cause of an accident is another.

We wish out esteemed solicitor the best outcome at his non-jury trial on Monday if it is not postponed, again and again.

He will come out fine. The MADD ladies are boycotting this one because they believe it is a slam dunk exoneration.

Wrong - the officer is good friends and supports the former Cornell School teacher. He would never do such to his former school teacher friend and the teacher's 24/7 political worker aka the barrister.
