UNION TOWNSHIP, Pa. (EYT) – According to Punxsutawney-based State Police, around 3:00 p.m. on June 29, a hit-and-run accident occurred on State Route 322, at its intersection with Haugh Hollow Road, in Union Township, Jefferson County.

Police say 24-year-old Amber L. McCullough, of Rimersburg, was stopped on SR 322 in a 2005 Mercury Mountaineer waiting for another vehicle to turn left onto Haugh Hollow Road. A Pontiac approached the intersection traveling west and failed to realize that traffic was stopped on the roadway.

The operator of the Pontiac fled the scene without exchanging any information or identifying himself, police say.
