No Charges Against Driver Involved in Fatal Crash That Killed Borough Teen

Washington County District Attorney Gene Vittone said there was not enough evidence to substantiate the charges.

Charges will not be filed against a McMurray man involved in a crash that killed a Canonsburg teenager in 2010, Washington County District Attorney Gene Vittone confirmed Wednesday.

Thomas B. McNary crashed his sport utility vehicle into a car July 17, 2010, in the area of West McMurray Road and state Route 19. The crash caused a chain-reaction collision injuring several people and killing 18-year-old Adah Porter, the Observer-Reporter indicated.

"The evidence which we gathered which includes many interviews and medical records does not support the filing of criminal charges," Vittone said. "From what we have it appears that this tragic accident several years ago was the result of McNary's diabetic condition."

In my opinion this was reckless behavior on McNarys part. As a diabetic, he should have a responsibility to maintain his blood sugar before he got behind the wheel of a moving vehicle.If you have a seizure disorder or a defibrillator, you are not allowed to drive, because you could have an episode and kill yourself or someone else. As a diabetic, he knows when his blood sugar is dropping,when he started to feel dizzy, he should have pulled off the road. By not maintaining his health, he killed a young girl and could have killed others. That is reckless behavior. It is the same as getting behind the wheel drunk. He was impaired. He should be charged with reckless driving. I didnt know the girl, but I feel for her family..
