Man Jailed After Hit-and-Run in Church Lot

A hit-and-run in a church parking lot landed a Bradford man in McKean County Jail.

Police say a car driven by 33-year-old Matthew Simonds hit several vehicles in the parking lot of the First Church of God on Main in Eldred, continued on across School Street, and then went down an embankment.

A four-year-old boy and an eight-year-old boy were in the car and suffered minor injuries.

Police later determined Simonds was driving under the influence, and was driving without a license because of a previous DUI conviction. He is currently on parole. Simonds was also charged with endangering the welfare of children.
