Evidence To Stand In Vehicular Homicide Case

 

 

by Amanda Jones

An appeal decision has been overturned by the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, and now blood evidence can be presented by the prosecution in a driving-under-the-influence (DUI) case begun in late 2014.

The Commonwealth filed an appeal for a decision affecting the case of the Commonwealth vs. Kaitlyn N. Wolfel, age 24, who was charged with one count of vehicular homicide and related charges following an accident that occurred on the night of December 21, 2014.

In the accident, David Croyle, age 62, was killed, and another Emporium man was injured while the two were walking on the Old West Creek Road in Shippen Township. Wolfel is alleged to have been the driver of the vehicle at the time of the accident, and police later obtained a blood sample from Wolfel after they allege she performed poorly on a field sobriety test.
