An Alexandria man sustained minor injuries in a one-vehicle crash Wednesday morning in Huntingdon County. According to State Police, 28-year-old Austin Harnish fell asleep at the wheel of a Ford Explorer just after 6:30 am on Main Street in Porter Township. The vehicle traveled down an embankment and overturned.
Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) said the Wolf Administration’s Transportation Funding Commission recommendations are ill-timed and short-sighted given Pennsylvania’s stagnant economic recovery and a similar discussion on the federal level. The Commission was formed by Governor Wolf in March to develop funding solutions for transportation infrastructure in the Commonwealth. Recommendations amount to across-the-board tax increases including a per-mileage fee for Pennsylvania drivers.
