Decatur Township, PA – After a fugitive fled from police in early June and ended up in the hospital with injuries from the resulting crash, the man has been released from the hospital and is facing charges for his actions.
23-year-old Hunter Anderson was wanted in Clearfield, Centre and Clinton Counties. On June 3, he led officers on a high-speed chase that lasted about 23 minutes, starting in Decatur Township in Clearfield County and ending in Snyder Township in Blair County. Anderson lost control of the truck, left the roadway and went airborne off an about 10-foot cement flood wall. The truck overturned several times, finally coming to rest in the river. Anderson was taken to UPMC Altoona for his injuries.
Now that he has been released from the hospital, he has been arraigned on all pending warrants. Police say they found about 40 grams of crystal meth in Anderson’s Dodge Dakota, along with 2 grams of cocaine and a small amount of suspected crack cocaine. Packaging material, a digital scale and other drug paraphernalia were also found in the truck.
Anderson has been charged with possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, flight to avoid apprehension, fleeing and eluding police, possession of a controlled substance and of drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence of a controlled substance, criminal mischief, and more than 60 traffic violations.
