Brockway Police Busy With Accidents, Other Incidents

BROCKWAY, Pa. (EYT) – The month of August saw the Brockway Borough Police Department busy with accidents, reckless driving infractions, and flaring tempers.

A two-vehicle accident by Sheetz had officers help the drivers exchange information. The accident was minor and no one was injured. Later, a motorcycle was found on its side with the rider underneath. Officers lifted the motorcycle off the rider, who was believed to be under the influence of alcohol. The rider refused a BAC at the hospital and charges are pending.

During the week of August 12, the Pennsylvania State Police asked Brockway Borough to help them find a reckless driver heading down 219 toward Brockway. Brockway officers made the stop. On August 19, residents reported a reckless driver on 7th Avenue. Officers were able to find the driver and issue a citation. 7th Avenue also had a driver who had been attempting to drive down the Rails-to-Trails. When officers arrived, they were unable to locate the vehicle.

Some suspicious vehicles attracted the attention of the department. One on Church Street turned out to be visiting a friend. Some people talking on Pershing Avenue got another call.

Alexander Street had a call of two juveniles yelling at children in a residence in the 300 block. The property owner asked the juveniles to leave, which they refused. The guardians were contacted.

A trespassing call on Bond Street during the week of August 26 was related to a dispute over property. A similar trespassing complaint was reported on 7th Avenue.

Cars were victims of criminal mischief during August. A car by Parkview Apartments had its tires slashed while one on North Street had ketchup and sauce poured over it.

Finally, drivers in the borough are reminded to follow the posted speed limits and stop at traffic lights and stop signs. The borough police department issued several traffic citations during the month.
