3 men charged after Pennsylvania 911 operator was accused of failing to send help

WAYNESBURG, Pennsylvania — Authorities have filed charges against three other people in the case of a Pennsylvania 911 operator accused of failing to dispatch an ambulance to the rural home of a woman who died of internal bleeding about a day later.

According to a criminal complaint, the three men were charged Monday with tampering with public records, tampering or falsifying evidence and obstruction.

You are or were Greene County Emergency Management Manager. Prosecutors allege they failed to provide policy notice folders detailing standard operating procedures.

According to the criminal complaint, the three conspired to “knowingly and purposefully conceal, withhold, refrain from, obstruct or falsify the release of documents” from the investigators.


Earlier this month, authorities charged 911 driver Leon “Lee” Price, 50, of Waynesburg, with manslaughter in the death of Diania Kronk, 54, in July 2020, based on Price’s reluctance to send assistance, without more certainty to get that Kronk would actually go to the hospital.

“I think she would be alive today if they had sent an ambulance,” said Kronk’s daughter, Kelly Titchenell, 38.

Price, who is also charged with reckless endangerment, official suppression and obstruction, repeatedly questioned Titchenell during the four-minute phone call if Kronk would agree to treatment.
