Sourwine, who was not wearing a seat belt, Gibbons and another passenger in Sourwine’s car, Cory D. Shay, 29, of Lebanon, were taken by ambulance to Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center following the crash. No details were available on their injuries or condition.
Police said they are continuing their investigation and are awaiting the results of blood alcohol tests on Sourwine before deciding on any charges related to the crash. Gibbons will be charged with an unspecified violation of Act 64, the state’s controlled substances and drug law.
