Hit, run suspect captured
The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office said Sunday that a man wanted for injuring a sheriff’s deputy in a hit and run incident Friday morning in Edinburg was arrested by the Pennsylvania State Police in Greencastle, Pennsylvania, at about 4:14 a.m. Sunday.
Maj. Scott Proctor of the Sheriff’s Office said Leon Joseph Cominsky, 54, of Georgia, was charged with drunken driving and being a fugitive from justice after his arrest.
Cominsky is also facing charges in Shenandoah County of malicious wounding of a law enforcement officer; eluding a law enforcement officer; hit and run; drunken driving and reckless driving.
Authorities say Cominsky drove off as Shenandoah County Deputy Daniel Dunivan tried to remove Cominsky from his car after seeing signs that he was driving while drunk. Dunivan suffered a leg injury and was treated and released from Shenandoah Memorial Hospital later in the day.
