    WASHINGTON COUNTY, Pa. - At least two people were injured after a driver traveling westbound on State Route 40 lost control of the vehicle and crashed around 10 p.m. Saturday, police said.

    According to police, the vehicle traveled approximately 100 feet before striking a guardrail and then a tree.

    The vehicle then slid down a hill, causing it to roll at least once before coming to a stop, police said.
    Police have identified the driver of the vehicle as Stacy Skariot.

    Police said neither Skariot nor the two children inside were wearing seatbelts or properly strapped into the vehicle.

    Police said they found the driver of the car to be under the influence of several narcotics and alcohol at the time of the accident.

    Police also said they found an open bottle of beer inside the vehicle along with several other beer bottles.

    Three prescription bottles with pills scattered through the vehicle were also found by police. Among them were 113 Xanex tablets and 14 Ambian tablets.
    Though charges have not yet been filed against Skariot due to the accident, police said Skariot is awaiting formal arraignment this month on prior DUI charges filed by Washington City Police for an incident which took place on Feb. 26, 2013.

    The condition of those injured is not yet known.
