Armstrong man faces numerous charges
An Armstrong County man has been accused of striking a pedestrian with his car in Indiana earlier this month.
Clayton Toy, 20, of Elderton, was charged with a felony count of aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence, misdemeanor counts of DUI and simple assault and a summary count of underage drinking.
Indiana Borough police charged that Toy’s car hit the pedestrian, who was not named in a news release, at 2:09 a.m. March 8 in the 200 block of Philadelphia Street.
The pedestrian was sent to Memorial Medical Center in Johnstown for treatment of a head injury, police said. Investigators withheld the pedestrian’s name and did not issue a condition report.
In the news release, police said Toy’s friend drove the car away from the scene, was located about two blocks away, and also was charged with DUI. Police did not name the second accused driver in the news report.
Toy was lodged at the Indiana County Jail and was charged later that day in a video arraignment by on-call District Judge Susanne Steffee, of Homer City.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 21.
