A Roulette woman was treated and released from UPMC Cole after a one-car accident Monday afternoon on the East Branch of Fishing Creek, about four miles north of Roulette. According to Police Chief Bryan Phelps, Cassandra Nelson was going south when she had to swerve her SUV to avoid a small white car which had crossed the center line. Her unit went off the road and rolled onto the driver’s side after colliding with the guardrail. The unknown unit continued on without the driver stopping to render aid or call 9-1-1. The driver of a car following the offending unit, stopped and helped Nelson get out of her car. Roulette Emergency Services responded to the scene.
The Pennsylvania House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to unanimously adopt an amendment that reflects a bipartisan agreement on legislation sponsored by Rep. Martin Causer (R-McKean/Cameron/Potter) to improve broadband deployment across unserved and underserved areas of Pennsylvania.
The legislation, House Bill 2071, would create the Pennsylvania Broadband Development Authority, which would act as the single point of contact for funding, promotion and development of broadband and related infrastructure in unserved and underserved areas of Pennsylvania.
House Bill 2071 is set to be voted on final passage in the House when the chamber returns to session on Dec. 13, 2021.
