MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Police have filed charges against a Lemoyne man in connection with a hit-and-run crash that injured a 5-year-old girl in Upper Allen Township.
Bill L. Stine, 44, was charged Monday with accidents involving death or personal injury, duty to give information and render aid, immediate notice of accident to police department, and careless driving.
