Swaboski III, employed as an elementary teacher in Shamokin Area School District, was found hiding in a wooded area near Seventh and Poplar streets and was taken into custody.
Three people are believed to be seriously injured and were taken to Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, two of whom were flown by Life Flight helicopter and a third driven by ambulance.  Two others were driven by ambulance to G-SACH in Coal Township. The five pedestrians, all believed to be teenagers, were walking east toward Mount Carmel when they were struck from behind by the eastbound Jeep.  Two of the teens had bicycles.  The victims were treated in a patch of grass just off the highway and near the school’s fence.  Those flown by helicopter were taken to the high school where a landing zone was established.
