GREENSBURG, Pa. -An ambulance driver who was cleared of a vehicular homicide charge in connection with a Murrysville man's death must face that criminal charge again, an appeals court ruled.
Jason Fait, of North Huntingdon, was originally charged after an October 2006 crash that killed Frank Scalise Jr., 46, of Murrysville.
Westmoreland County Judge Debra Pezze dismissed the charge last summer, ruling that the 32-year-old Fait hadn't committed a criminal act.
But a state appeals court reinstated the criminal prosecution on Today.
Police said Fait went through a red light in Hempfield Township while driving a Penn Township Rescue 6 ambulance.
The vehicle collided with Scalise's SUV at the intersection of Route 130 and North Greengate Road.
Summary offenses of reckless driving, careless driving and failure to stop at a red light were also filed against Fait.
