• Man gets prison in fatal jitney driver hit-and-run

    PITTSBURGH (AP) (AP)ong> - A Moon Township man has been sentenced to three to six years in prison followed by 10 years' probation for a drunken hit-and-run accident that killed a jitney driver who was standing outside his vehicle.

    Shontelle Harvey, 41, was sentenced by an Allegheny County judge on Tuesday after previously being convicted of homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence and other charges.

    Police in Leetsdale were called about 3 a.m. Aug. 18 after the jitney driver, 67-year-old Charles Britt, of Penn Hills, was hit along the side of the road. Britt was reportedly outside the vehicle arguing with one of his passengers when Harvey's vehicle passed and hit Britt.

    Harvey later told police he was afraid to stop because he was already on probation for another crime.
