Hit and runs have occurred several times in McKeesport history. I don't recall any solved hit and runs in the past ten years.

I hope they find the driver, and the past responsible. Allegheny county Schurman said the driver in McKeesport didn't stop.

My condolences to the family. Most having to walk had life hard enough! To the family, sorry for your loss.
So Sorry 4 Loss

Might be because of J.L. Marco, the witness. He's always around the area in the wee hours. I'm glad he can witness because he's known to be very credible.

We should start raising money for the family.

Shame on you. It appears that the person had some mental health issues and lived at a facility less than 100 from where she was killed. The facility is an assisted living arrangement with no lockdown policy

I see it! I am glad he was found. I am curious to see who did it and hear the reason. If on purpose, no reason will be acceptable. But the driver had to hear the hit and know. I'm upset with the past several excuses that they thought it was a dog or animal. You'd stop for a animal if hit!

Too many get away with hit and run on the right of way excuse. This driver never stopped. He could been drunk and we may never know. The driver never stopped.

You are an ass. The poor woman is dead. You come on here spewing hatred, untruthful, asinine drivel. The next time you are driving through Mckeesport dumping your trash, I hope one of Coach Smith's renegade, criminal pittbulls puts a .44 caliber bullett between your eyes you lowlife scum.

Everyone included me is just confused as you are. John Q is a football coach according to other post. I do not know him at all other than from on here. No idea if any is true or not as to even the coach part. I think he's upset with McKeesport practices and went off. I feel so sorry for that lady and her family. I know the news said they caught the driver and impounded the truck. But why not reveal who the driver is? Everyone wants to see the driver, it should be public. Hope the judges don't postpone as many times as Elash. He could have hit someone while driving drunk at 716 Long Run Road.

John Q drives a Hummer.. not a Jeep or Escalade. Yes, he has been coaching for a long time in youth sports. He is an expert on many things... and best of all... he openly spews total disdain for the Port. Difference between him and most people, is he says what he thinks about the port. There are deep seated hatred for the port amongst all of the surrounding areas that goes back into the 80's. The port is responsible for all of the valley drug trade and gang violence clear to Monessen. It all starts with the scum bags living the dream in the port.

The driver of the car that hit the druggie/hooker is in custody and is indeed a former officer in the port from what I am hearing.
