Murrysville Police Arrest Driver for DUI After 2-Vehicle Crash
Police in Murrysville responded to the scene of a two-vehicle head-on collision involving a drunk driver on Friday, January 11. The accident happened on School Road near the intersection of Foxwood Court at around 2 p.m.
According to the authorities, 56-year-old Lane J. Weiner had two cold 12-packs of Bud Light which were opened in the backseat of her vehicle at the time of the accident. There were also several empty beer bottles in the backseat.
A witness told responding officers that she had been driving behind Weiner for about a mile prior to the accident and that she suspected Weiner was impaired. She said that Weiner was driving erratically and speeding up a hill on School Road when she crossed the center line and collided head-on with another vehicle.
Firefighters had to free both drivers from their vehicles as they were trapped. The man driving the other vehicle underwent surgery at UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh for a broken wrist and leg. Weiner was brought to the same hospital for treatment of her injuries.
Weiner’s BAC was 0.098 percent, which is above Pennsylvania’s legal limit of 0.08. She has been charged with aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence and other related offenses.
