Charges filed in deadly Ross Township hit-and-run

A woman is now facing charges after a hit-and-run in Ross Township earlier this month that left a woman dead.

Elizabeth Griser, 32, was struck along Babcock Boulevard near the Sheetz on Jan. 13. She later died at the hospital.

Ross police said Erin Petroski, 39, was awaiting arraignment on charges that include homicide by vehicle while DUI and involuntary manslaughter after turning herself in at the Allegheny County Jail on Monday.

Deputy chief Brian Kohlhepp said surveillance and traffic cameras helped police identify a vehicle and get a license plate.

“Officers were able to respond to the area, see fresh damage on the car. They were able to speak with Ms. Petroski,” Kohlhepp said. “At that point, she had been taken, and a blood draw was done to determine if she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the crash, and then our investigation continued to gather more surveillance video as well as other evidence that we would need to prepare to come to trial.”
