Police in Cumberland County say they filed charges against Brandon Scott Duncan on December 26, 2018 stemming from an incident in August of this year charging him with Aggravated Assault with a Vehicle while Driving Under the Influence.
East Pennsboro Police say the investigation began on August 14, 2018, at approximately 5:08PM, when they were dispatched to a crash with injuries in the 500 block of N. Enola Road for a report there was an unconscious male trapped in one of the vehicles.
Upon arrival, officers say they found that a vehicle being operated by Brandon Scott Duncan, 25, of the 200 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, Enola, had been driving south when he crossed the center turn lane and went into the northbound lane striking one vehicle, spinning it 180-degrees and then struck a second vehicle head-on. Duncan displayed signs of opiate use and was transported to the hospital for his injuries. Once at the hospital, Duncan was requested to submit to a legal blood draw.
Police say in following up with the occupants of the vehicle Duncan struck head-on they found both suffered significant injuries, one being out of work for a lengthy period of time, and not having full use of her hand.
After police received the blood results they say the laboratory results show Duncan had opiates in his system at the time of the crash. Duncan was charged with Aggravated Assault by Vehicle while DUI, DUI, Driving on Roadways Laned for Travel, Driving while Operating Privilege is Suspended, and failing to use a Restraint System (Seatbelt). Duncan will face a preliminary hearing before MDJ Sanderson.
The 26 year old awaits a preliminary hearing in this matter and has not been arrested in this matter.
Duncan was charged in 2011 with Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Marijuana-Small Amount Personal Use, Conspiracy – Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Int Possession Controlled Substance. In a plea deal the highest charges were dismissed and Duncan served 12 months probation. In a plea deal earlier this year Duncan was charged with Forgery and Bad checks and saw most charges dropped after making payments.
