CLEARFIELD – District Attorney William A. Shaw Jr. has announced Clearfield County’s Fugitive of the Week for the week of Sept. 8.
Shaw identified the fugitive as Sirena Michelle Schachtner, 20, of West Long Avenue, DuBois. Schachtner is wanted for failure to appear at criminal call on Sept. 4.
On March 27, Trooper Robert McGarvey of the Pennsylvania State Police, DuBois barracks, filed a criminal complaint against Schachtner. He charged Schachtner with accidents involving death or personal injury while not properly licensed; careless driving; drivers required to be licensed; and vehicle entering or crossing roadway.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on May 22, 2013, state police were dispatched to the scene of a two-vehicle crash with injuries on Route 322 in the area of Spruce Hill Road, Union Township. Upon investigation it was found that Schachtner was the operator who pulled out in front of another vehicle, which was traveling eastbound on Route 322.
The vehicle operated by Schachtner was impacted on the driver’s side, causing serious bodily injury to three passengers. It was determined that Schachtner did not possess a valid driver’s license at the time of the crash.
A preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 2, at which time all charges were held for court. On Sept. 4, Schachtner failed to appear for criminal call and a warrant was issued for her arrest.
