NEW CASTLE — A western Pennsylvania woman has been charged with text-messaging while driving in connection with a crash earlier this month that killed a former volunteer fire chief.
Laura Gargiulo, 42, of Volant, also faces charges including homicide by vehicle and involuntary manslaughter in the wreck that killed 68-year-old Daniel Gallatin on May 7.
Gallatin was the former chief in Scott Township, about 50 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
Police obtained a search warrant
Gargiulo faces a preliminary hearing later this week.
