McKEESPORT, Pa. —
A former Allegheny County police officer accused in a deadly hit-and-run crash in McKeesport appeared in court Monday. Investigators said Timothy Tatters, 64, struck and killed a mentally challenged woman who was crossing the street in January. Authorities said Lorraine Wilkes was walking outside the senior care facility where she lived when the accident happened. "This is obviously a tragedy, but I don't think there's any criminal liability in the part of Tim Tatters," defense attorney Scott Lautner said. As part of Tatters' bond, the judge is not allowing him to be anywhere near where alcohol is served. He's also not allowed to drive. "He's doing as well as can be expected. He's very bothered and upset about the situation. Hopefully we can get this all taken care of," Lautner said. Tatters was an Allegheny County police officer for more than 21 years before he retired in 1993.
