Beaver Falls woman dies in Strip traffic accident

A Beaver Falls woman died in a one-car accident in the Strip District on Sunday morning when her vehicle collided with a telephone pole, the Allegheny County medical examiner's office reported.

Melissa Tates, 34, was pronounced dead at UPMC Mercy Hospital at 7:45 a.m. She sustained blunt force trauma in the crash of her four- door sedan at the intersection of Liberty Avenue and 17th Street, an investigator said. There were no passengers in the vehicle.

The coroner's report said Ms. Tates had been seen driving erratically on Liberty Avenue, and the road was wet at the time of the accident.

Former Addison residents invited to housing meetings

The Pittsburgh Housing Authority will hold meetings on the next two Wednesdays to reconnect with former residents of Addison Terrace as the first phase of construction of 186 new units is underway.

The meetings are open to the public and will start at 6 p.m. Wednesday and March 12 at the former Leo Weil School, 2250 Centre Ave.

Fifty new units are expected to be completed by the end of this year in the Elmore Square area of the Hill District, where part of the 1940s-era project was constructed. Those residents were relocated almost two years ago and could have priority for new units.

"We have the last known addresses for many people, but that doesn't mean they're still there," said Michelle Jackson, chief community affairs officer for the housing authority. "We just want to make sure we don't omit folks who used to live there."

About 200 original units are still occupied in locations that would be involved in later phases of redevelopment, she said. The number of phases has yet to be determined, but they will replace current housing on Bentley Drive and include some scattered site units.

The housing authority will also take calls from former residents to Cassandra Palmer at 412-456-5000, ext. 1014.
