Local Man Faces Drug, DUI Charges

Charges related to driving under the influence as well as drug and traffic violations will be filed by state police against 42- year- old Matthew Barclay, of Mc- Connellsburg.

Charges, police said, stem from a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Lincoln Way East and Route 16 on Saturday, August 20, involving Barclay and Chambersburg resident Bobbie Jo Roth. Roth, 35, was stopped at the intersection when the rear of her 2002 Dodge Neon was rear- ended by a 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan operated by Barclay.

Following the 4:15 p.m. collision, Barclay continued westbound, crossing the centerline and almost struck another vehicle, police allege.

Barclay, Roth and Roth’s passengers, a 10-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl, were not injured in the collision. Charges against Barclay will be filed through Magisterial District Judge Wendy Mellott.
