Details of the Vehicle Versus Pedestrian Accident

The Reynoldsville Borough Police Department responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian accident that occurred around 10:18 p.m. on October 7 at 45 West Main Street in Reynoldsville.

According to a criminal complaint, 53-year-old Timothy Leroy Clark, of Reynoldsville, who was driving a Chevrolet Blazer, stated that he did not see the person on the roadway until it was too late.

He allegedly admitted to having five beers prior to leaving a local establishment, the complaint states.

Police interviewed the passenger of the vehicle who stated they were doing approximately 10 to 15 mph, and she said they were coming from the local establishment and that she and Clark had been drinking.

Clark submitted to a PBT (Preliminary Breath Test), and “the results were positive for alcohol on his breath,” the complaint indicates.

According to the complaint, “the reading was over the legal limit, and Clark was placed under arrest for suspected DUI.”

Police interviewed the victim at the Emergency Room at Penn Highlands DuBois. She complained of left hip and left side back pain, the complaint states.

Police noted that “the victim was wearing dark clothing which may have made it hard for the driver to see her,” the complaint continues.
