    Crash

    FRACKVILLE - State police are searching for the driver of a white Honda Accord manufactured between 2003 and 2008 with damage or sea foam green paint transfer near its rear wheel after a hit and run at 6:55 p.m. Saturday in Butler Township.

    Police said the driver of the white Honda was traveling south in the passing lane on I-81 at mile 117.3 and cut into the right lane, striking a Ford Escape driven by Tricia K. Zimmerman, 22, of Pitman. The impact caused Zimmerman's vehicle to spin, slide off the road and strike a jersey barrier separating the southbound shoulder from a roadside rock embankment. Zimmerman's vehicle then became airborne for approximately 35 feet, vaulted over the barrier and landed on the embankment.

    The driver of the white Honda fled the scene south on I-81.

    Neither Zimmerman nor her passenger, Charles A. Zimmerman, 34, of Pitman, were injured, but the Escape was severely damaged and required towing.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact state police in Frackville at 570-874-5300.

  • Domestic argument results in assault charge

    Sayre Police were dispatched to the scene of a reported domestic disturbance at Fulton Street in the Borough of South Waverly. Upon arrival, officers took a statement from the victim indicating that she and her boyfriend had been arguing and that he had "beat her up." She stated to officers that she had been struck and kicked by Patrick M. Firestine, 21, of Sayre, and there was observable blood coming from around the victim's mouth.

    Officers located Firestine in an area around his home and immediately placed him under arrest for simple assault at which time it was discovered that Firestine was on parole.

    Firestine was charged with simple assault and harassment and was pre-arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Michael Shaw on Oct. 14 and received $5,000 bail. He will return to face these charges at 9 a.m. on Oct. 21.

    Motorcycle rider cited for DUI

    Athens Borough Police on duty Sept. 13 were on patrol when they observed a motorcyclist with no helmet or glass following too closely to a sedan on North Elmira Street. The motorcyclist failed to stop at a posted signal and continued to ride down the center of the roadway on Spruce Street.

    At this time the officer activated his emergency lights and conducted a traffic stop in the parking lot of the Twin Rivers apartment complex.

    The rider was identified by officers as Ashley N. Pollox, 26, of Sayre. When asked if she had any alcoholic beverages before operating her motorcycle, Pollox stated she had one.

    Officers asked Pollox to perform a standard of field sobriety tests which officers concluded she failed. She was then placed under arrest and charged with a series of charges related to the DUI, including: DUI general impairment; DUI highest rate of alcohol; two counts of failure to keep right; following too closely; duties at a stop sign; and not wearing protective headgear.

    She will face Magisterial District Judge Michael Shaw at 10 a.m. on Nov. 7 to answer to these charges.

    False reporting charges filed

    Athens Borough Police responded to the scene of a reported burglary which resulted in an assault on an individual. During the course of the investigation of the burglary and subsequent injury, police determined that Thomas J. Mosier, 18, of Sayre, had falsely reported to officers that he had been assaulted by an unknown Hispanic male. In his interview with police, Mosier admitted that he had caused injury to himself and made up the assailant out of his embarrassment.

    Mosier was charged with making a false report incriminating another and reporting an offense that did not occur. He will face Magisterial District Judge Michael Shaw at 10:15 a.m. on Nov. 18 to answer to the charges.
