The Mifflin County Regional Police Department is investigating two hit and run motor vehicle accidents.  The first accident occurred in the parking lot of the Moose Family Center in Derry Township. On February 3rd, between 10:00 pm and 10:30 pm, an unknown vehicle stuck a parked Subaru Outback in the parking lot of the facility. The striking vehicle immediately fled the scene.  The second accident occurred on Route 522 North near Kish Veterinary Service in Derry Township. On February 4th, at approximately 11:15 am, a dark colored pick-up truck towing a red trailer side-swiped a Balfurd delivery van while attempting to pass.  The operator of the truck and trailer fled the scene.  Anyone with information of either striking vehicle is asked to contact Regional Police at 717-248-1900 extension 631.


Authorities in Huntingdon County are investigating terroristic threats made over the weekend.  According to State Police, an 11-year-old female in Shirleysburg received threatening messages through Facebook Messenger on Saturday.


PennDOT has issued another update on the Route 322 – Potters Mills Gap project in Centre County. Traffic stops with some delays are expected to continue.  On Thursday (February 7th) and Friday (February 8th), flaggers will enforce an alternating traffic pattern between Route 144 and Decker Valley Road while crews perform shoulder repairs.  The crossover from Decker Valley Road to Sand Mountain Road remains in place, with one lane open in each direction.  This crossover, along with a 13-foot width restriction, will continue through winter.  Work will also continue off the roadway and drivers should be alert for construction vehicles entering and exiting Route 322 through the Potters Mills area.  Up-to-date information can be found on the PMG Project page at www.penndot.gov/pottersmillsgap.


A Hanover woman was involved in a one-vehicle crash Friday afternoon in Juniata County.  State Police say 21-year-old Alysha Goldsmith was the driver of a Toyota 4Runner on Route 22 in Fermanagh Township.  The vehicle left the road and struck a concrete barrier before rolling over and coming to rest on the shoulder of the highway.  Goldsmith was not injured.


The American Red Cross will be in Juniata County for a blood drive today.  You can give the “Gift of Life” at the Community Building on West Fourth Street in Port Royal from 1:30 pm to 7:00 pm.
