MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A state lawmaker from western Pennsylvania says he’s won’t seek re-election in 2018 after a motorcycle crash prompted him to reconsider his outlook on life.

Republican state Rep. Eli Evankovich of Murrysville tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/2gAvzwN ) that the May crash was a “life event” that could’ve ended differently.

Evankovich was first elected in 2010 to represent the 54th District, which includes parts of Allegheny Westmoreland counties. He was re-elected this year to a fourth two-year term.

Evankovich has served on the finance, insurance, consumer affairs, aging and rules committees. He says he wants to continue working on government reform, job growth and fiscal responsibility.

Evankovich says he doesn’t know what he’ll do once he leaves office.
