NEW CASTLE — Multiple charges were filed as the result of a rollover accident in Wayne Township earlier this month.

State police said the driver of the vehicle received seven citations, while a passenger was cited for public drunkenness.

The accident occurred the evening of Sept. 7, police said, when Damon G. Finley, 37, of Fombell was southbound on Wurtemburg Road.

The car went off the east berm and hit a tree before rolling over twice and coming to rest on its wheels, according to police.

Finley and a passenger, later identified as Bret A. Haswell, 50, of Ellwood City, fled the scene, police said.

Finley wasn’t injured, officers said, but added it is not known if Haswell was hurt in the crash.
