Police probe fatal ATV crash

NEW CASTLE — State police said they are continuing their investigation into the death of a New Wilmington woman in Mercer County.

However, officers said it appears that Santana Marie Riethmiller, 23, died when the all-terrain vehicle she was operated hit a fence post.

According to state police in Mercer, the accident occurred late Friday in a wooded area off Riethmiller Road in Lackawannock Township. The area is in a rural portion of Mercer County about a mile south of I-80.

Police said Riethmiller was on private property with her ATV when the accident occurred. She suffered unspecified injuries, which proved to be fatal.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
