Pa. Police Received Threat After Sisters’ Crash

VANDERGRIFT, Pa. (AP) – State police say western Pennsylvania township police have been threatened if they charge anyone in connection with a fatal crash in which a woman died in a car driven by her sister.

State police haven’t charged anyone with sending the letter to the Parks Township police and say whoever sent it must also not be aware that state troopers – not the township police – are still investigating the March 18 crash that killed 26- year-old Nicole Dibler, of Vandergrift.

Police say Dibler was returning from a bachelorette party with her 23-year-old sister, Michelle, who lost control of the car, which rolled into the Kiski River. That happened about 35 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Troopers tell the Valley News Dispatch the anonymous letter threatening to harm Parks Township police was sent March 26.
