A two-vehicle crash late Wednesday afternoon in Huntingdon County resulted in injuries and DUI charges.  State Police charged Dawn Marie Elensky of Huntingdon with driving under the influence of a controlled substance after the crash on Route 453 in Warriors Mark Township.   Elensky was the driver of a Chevy Uplander that failed to stop and collided with the rear of a Honda Fit.  A passenger in the Honda was transported to UPMC Altoona where she underwent surgery for internal bleeding and a blood clot resulting from the crash.  A three-year-old passenger in the Honda was flown to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh with a fractured skull and internal bleeding.  The investigation will continue.


REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and photo ID cards are now available for Pennsylvania residents who want one.  Federal REAL ID regulations require that PennDOT verify a customer’s identity, social security number, Pennsylvania residency, and name changes, even if a customer already has a PA driver’s license or ID card.  When a customer gets their first REAL ID product, they will pay a one-time fee of $30, plus a renewal fee.  PennDOT has upgraded seven of its existing driver’s license centers to allow for over-the-counter issuance of REAL ID, including Rockview in Centre County, and Altoona.  More information about REAL ID can be found at www.penndot.gov/REALID.
