Boy's death still probed
More than six weeks after a 2-year-old boy died inside a Warsaw Street house, authorities are continuing the investigation, Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis said Monday.
The boy, whose name has not been released, was found unresponsive inside 245 Warsaw St. on Feb. 22, and rushed to Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, and an autopsy was performed.
Luzerne County Acting Coroner William Lisman said the cause and manner of the boy's death remain pending until the criminal investigation is finished.
Salavantis said investigators are continuing interviews to determine why the boy died.
Shooting victim named
City police on Monday released the name of the man who was shot during an alleged burglary on Hayes Street on Saturday.
Police said Zachary Dangelo, 26, last known address as Oak Street, Freeland, was shot in the pelvic area at about 12:20 p.m. Dangelo was flown to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township.
Police said Dangelo was found inside the residence when the homeowner returned from a shopping trip. The homeowner, whose name was not released, shot Dangelo with a handgun, police said.
Police said the investigation is continuing. No charges have been filed as of Monday.
Double-fine zone may grow
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, at the urging of the state police, is in the initial phases of a plan to extend the I-80 Safety Corridor from Stroud Township another 11 miles to Interstate 380.
The plan needs approval from the state before it can go into effect.
In the safety corridor, fines for speeding are doubled. Only the fine is doubled, not the associated costs with a speeding ticket. Fines range from about $40 to $100, depending on how fast a driver is going when caught.
The current safety corridor, established in 2002, runs from Stroud Township's mile marker 304 to Delaware Water Gap (Exit 310), a distance of six miles. Under the state police proposal, it would run an extra 11 miles to Exit 293 in Jackson Township.
PennDOT spokesman Sean Brown said there is a four-step criteria the area must meet before it can get safety-corridor designation. There is no timeline, however, on how long it could take to institute the corridor extension, Brown said.
