A central Pennsylvania man has been charged with homicide by vehicle in the death of a state highway worker last spring.
State police say 25-year-old Jared Geibe of Palmyra turned himself in Monday to face charges that also included involuntary manslaughter, recklessly endangering another person and summary traffic offenses. He is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Nov. 18.
Authorities said he struck 57-year-old Thomas Allen of Lebanon on May 11 as he was working as a flagger for a moving road-cutting operation in Lebanon County. Investigators said Geibe had just crested a hill when he swerved to avoid stopped traffic and went up and along an embankment before striking Allen, who died at the scene.
A listed number for Geibe could not be found Wednesday and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.
