Police Blotter: Sunday, May 19, 2013
UPPER AUGUSTA TOWNSHIP - No one was injured in a two-vehicle crash at 11:50 p.m. Friday on North Front Street in Upper Augusta Township, just north of Sunbury.
State police at Stonington report a 2002 Volkswagen Passat, driven by Michelle Bell, 22, of Northumberland, was following a 2003 Chevrolet S-10 truck, driven by Jeffrey P. Jones, 47, of Bloomsburg, as both vehicles were traveling south on Route 147. Jones stopped his vehicle, but Bell couldn't stop in time and ran into the rear of the pickup.
Police allege Bell drove away from the scene, but her vehicle was tracked by leaking fluids.
Neither driver, nor Bell's passenger, Gregory J. Shiffer, 21, of Sunbury, were injured.
Police cited Bell for following too closely and said other charges are pending further investigation.
