Charged after crash

A Littlestown man was charged after leaving the scene of a March 17 crash.

Charges were filed Tuesday against Roger Hollenbaugh III, 45, according to a magisterial docket.

The vehicle ended up partly on the road’s shoulder, blocking the westbound lane, police said.

Hollenbaugh suffered what appeared to be a “minor injury,” but was not transported by ambulance, police said.

Charges included driving under the influence, DUI with a blood alcohol concentration above 0.16 percent, a lane violation, abandoning a vehicle on a highway, careless driving, two counts related to not stopping and providing information about a crash, and having an open alcohol container in a vehicle, according to the docket.

He did not stop after driving into the rear of a slowing westbound vehicle on Carlisle Pike (Pa. Route 94) near Fawn Avenue in Hampton, police said.

Neither Steinhart nor the other driver, Robert Sawyer, 27, of Hanover, was injured in the 9:19 p.m. incident, police said.
