Uniontown woman held for court in German Township fatality
A 19-year-old Uniontown woman is headed to court on a homicide by vehicle charge following a preliminary hearing on Tuesday.
In addition, Lindsey Ann Skocik faces charges of accidents involving death or injury, driving without a license and other motor vehicle violations.
Skocik and McClellandtown residents Roxanne M. Wolfe, 18, and Steven E. Hawk, 19, were traveling on Route 166 in German Township on Aug. 13, 2012, when Skocik lost control of a 1988 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it struck an embankment, according to an affidavit filed by state police Trooper Robert Broadwater.
The Jeep then rolled onto its roof and landed on a concrete curb, police said. Wolfe and Hawk were ejected as the vehicle continued to roll.
Wolfe was taken to Uniontown Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Masontown District Judge Randy Abraham held the charges for trial.
Skocik is free on $50,000 unsecured bond.
