Hearing for Fatal Crash Moved

The man charged in a fatal Memorial Day weekend crash near Port Allegany was scheduled to be in McKean County Central Court today, but his preliminary hearing has been moved to next month.

31-year-old Jerver Fernandez of Luzerne County is charged with homicide by vehicle and homicide by vehicle white DUI for the May 24 crash on Route 6 about two miles east of Port Allegany.

Police say his pickup truck crossed the center line and hit a car driven by 27-year-old Robert Bowes head-on. Bowes was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fernandez is free on $25,000 unsecured bail. The new hearing date is July 28.
