Eleven More Students Face Charges in Penn State Hit and Run

SHARE

Police have already targeted the former student who allegedly drove her car into a Penn State freshman and then fled the scene December 2, leaving the victim critically injured. Now 11 more students, who police say furnished the victim with alcohol the night of the accident, could face misdemeanor charges. The glut of booze that night has made blame hard to place, police say. The driver's lawyer claims she would have hit the freshman--who witnesses say stumbled into traffic after attending several parties--even if her blood alcohol content was not .208. But an assistant district attorney told the Collegian that "while he does not condone underage drinking, he finds it hard to fault [the victim], who chose not to drive." The kids who allegedly gave him booze, though--apparently they are another story.
