Troopers say Patrick Ciarrocchi was traveling north when his Chevrolet Silverado went off the road and struck a mile marker post causing a flat tire. The driver pulled over a short distance later near the Black Hole Road to fix the flat and a patrol officer who stopped to assist, allegedly found him to be intoxicated.
Icy Conditions Cause Tioga County Crash
Minor injuries were reported for a Williamsport man following a one-vehicle crash Friday morning on Route 414 in Liberty Township, Tioga County. According to state police, 71 year old William Stover was traveling east when his Chevrolet Express Van slide out of control on a patch of ice in the eastbound lane, spun counter-clockwise into the opposite lane where it struck a culvert with the undercarriage and started to roll over but was stopped when the roof hit a tree. The van rotated another 90 degrees before coming to rest upright. Stover declined treatment for a minor facial injury.

Coudersport-Based State Police Cracking Down on Untarped Loads
State Police from the Coudersport barracks conducted a detail this past Friday and Saturday stopping vehicles with untarped loads of garbage going into the Potter County Solid Waste Authority in Gold. Authorities say they found more than 20 vehicles with tarp violations in a three-hour span. Only about 10 to 20% of the loads were tarped. Police say there are not enough troopers to stop every vehicle going in and out of Gold so they are asking for everyone’s help—tarp your load and report any untarped loads you might encounter. State police advise they will be conducting stepped up enforcement over the coming weeks and months. Officials recently reported that items have blown off of trucks and trailers increasing roadside litter nd causing traffic hazards in some cases.

Yehl was picked up during a Roving Patrol and DUI checkpoint effort conducted between 11:00 p.m. Saturday and 5:00 a.m. Sunday through McKean County by State police, Bradford City Police and the McKean County District Attorney’s office. During the effort, three under age drinking arrests were made, 24 warnings were issued and 14 traffic arrests were made. Troopers say they will continue to deploy sobriety checkpoints and roving DUI details throughout the year at various locations around McKean County.
