North Hills Hit-And-Run Suspect Turns Self In

By Ralph Iannotti

ROSS TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — The driver of a car involved in a serious hit-and-run accident last month has surrendered to authorities.

Ross Township Police Detective Brian Kohlhepp says the suspect is 21-year-old Matthew Staub, who faces charges including aggravated assault, reckless driving and tampering with evidence.

Kohlhepp told KDKA-TV Staub was behind the wheel of his girlfriend’s car, a Pontiac Grand AM, the night of the mishap on Dec. 14, 2010 when he struck Mary Ann Hussar.

She was critically injured while taking out the garbage on Hillendale Road. Staub lives on Hillendale Road and so does Hussar.

Police said Staub’s girlfriend is cooperating with the investigation. The victim’s husband, Daniel Hussar, told KDKA-TV that today felt like Christmas because police have named a suspect who nearly killed his wife.

Daniel Hussar said he wanted to publicly thank police for “doing a hell of a job with the investigation.” His wife is now out of the hospital and is expected to be in rehabilitation for several months.

    He wouldn’t have turned himself in if he didn’t know he was wanted.

    Another all- about- me, young punk who thought he was tough, is going to find out he isn’t so tough when he spends a little time behind bars. Make that a lot of time behind bars, hopefully.

    everybody knew he was bad news. his parents kept bailing and covering for him any other time he got in trouble with law. If ppl only knew half the stuff he has gotten away with. wow. his parents knew he was druggie and continued to baby him and aid his addiction by giving him money and gifts. Well I hope they finally realize that all they did was make things worse!!
