A head-on collision last week in Huntingdon County resulted in injuries for a Shirleysburg woman.  The crash occurred just before 6:00 am October 2nd on Croghan Pike in Cromwell Township.  According to a State Police report, 18-year-old Jared Druist of Spring Run fell asleep at the wheel of a Chevy Trailblazer.  His vehicle crossed into the oncoming lane and struck a Jeep Wrangler driven by 53-year-old Sherri Love.  Love’s vehicle rolled over and came to rest down an embankment.  She was transported to UPMC Altoona for treatment of serious injuries.

 

Charges are pending following an investigation into suspicious plants in Juniata County.  According to State Police, a 24-year-old male is suspected of growing marijuana in a wooded area on Texas Hollow Road in Walker Township.  The incident was reported October 4th.  The investigation will continue.
