PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A man is facing multiple charges, including DUI, after he crashed into a car in Shaler on Sunday morning.
The crash happened around 6:30 a.m. on Route 8 at Butler Plank Road.
Witnesses told police 38-year-old Justin Kolanz was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee that crossed the dividing line on Route 8, hitting a car driven by a 69-year-old woman. She was taken to the hospital in serious to critical condition. Her passenger, a 36-year-old man, was also sent to the hospital, but was later released.
