Traffic Accident, Charges

•Two people were charged following a Feb. 15 traffic accident on Old Stage Road near Huntingdon.

Samantha Hollowell (age and address not provided) was charged with DUI, reckless driving, drug paraphernalia, and leaving the scene of an accident, and Cody Lawrence Fenti, 31, of 112 Allen Street, Bruceton, was charged with possession of schedule II with intent, possession of schedule VI, and drug paraphernalia.
