PSP Roundup: Horse and buggy crash in Newville, trespassing at Chambersburg Mall

24 June 2024- Pennsylvania State Police say that a 30 year old Hagerstown man is in custody following a retail theft at Walmart in Chambersburg last week. Troopers were initially dispatched around 6:30pm on June 19th for a retail theft and upon arriving arrested the unnamed Hagerstown man. Stolen in the incident, Troopers say, was a $105 Garmin backup camera.

A juvenile from Frederick is facing trespassing charges following an incident at the Chambersburg Mall last week. Troopers were conducting a security check at the Chambersburg mall around 7:35pm on June 20th when they reportedly observed a vehicle in the parking lot. The Troopers quickly found the unnamed juvenile walking around the exterior of the mall near an open garage door.

An investigation reportedly determined that the juvenile had opened the garage door, causing no damage. A non-traffic citation was filed.

PSP in Cumberland County are currently investigating a collision last week between a horse and buggy and a passenger vehicle. Troopers say that a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe driven by an 83 year old Newville man was travelling east on Greenspring Road in North Newton Township when it crested an incline in the road.

At the same time, a horse and buggy containing four people was also traveling the same road in the same direction. PSP say the Hyundai struck the horse and buggy as it was cresting the incline in the road. The Hyundai had attempted to swerve, PSP say, but was unsuccessful and struck the rear right side of the buggy. The buggy quickly came to a rest with the family inside but the horse continued eastward down Greenspring Road for about a mile.

While the Hyundai had disabling damage, PSP say, the driver did not need to be transported to the hospital. All four occupants of the horse and buggy, however, were transported to Holy Spirit Hospital for their injuries. The driver of the Hyundai was cited for following too closely, according to PSP.
