Suspected Alcohol Related Accident Kills Paula Jones in Harveys Lake, Pennsylvania

HARVEYS LAKE, PA — Wyoming County Authorities have named Paula Jones as the woman that was killed in an accident that they think may have been alcohol related in Harveys Lake, Pennsylvania on Sunday, June 7th, 2015. News reports out of Pittsburgh were not clear as to the exact time authorities were notified of the accident.

31-year-old Paula Jones died when she was struck by a passing motorist as she was jogging on Lakeside Drive. Police said that Jones was hit by the car, which subsequently fled the scene following the accident.

Jones was rushed to Geisinger Wyoming Medical Center where she eventually succumbed to her injuries.

Authorities tracked down a vehicle and believe the driver was Michael Scavone, who is currently being investigated for the possibility of drunk driving in connection with the accident.

The investigation is underway at this time.

Scene of the Accident

In the news report covering the accident, the alleged driver in the accident admitted to police that he had drank at several bars, and began early in the afternoon. If this is true, I’d be tracking down and putting each and every bar, each and every drink order under a microscope. Why would this be important? Because if the bar broke the law and over-served the driver in this accident, both the driver, and the bar (or bars) that broke the law by furnishing alcohol to a customer when they should have been cut off, then the bar needs to face consequences right along side the driver. Make no mistake, in no way am I saying that the driver who made the decision to get behind the wheel after hours of drinking should face any less punishment, quite the contrary, actually. I believe that every single hand that played a role in this accident needs to face accountability for failing to prevent it.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
