Philly Officer DUI Charge; Turnpike Toll Hike In January; Bicyclist ID'd In Bucks Co. Hit And Run

The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office has charged a Philadelphia police officer with assault and a DUI after an accident that occurred last year in Southwest Philadelphia. Officials say that 36-year-old Kevin Kline was off duty last Christmas Eve driving on Passyunk Avenue, when he hit a car and proceeded to flee the scene. The car that was struck tracked down Kline, eventually stopping him. This is when the victims say he pointed his service gun at them and then took off. Kline, who is a 9-year-veteran of the police force, has been suspended for 30 days with intent to dismiss.

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission announced that a toll hike will take into effect on the first Sunday in January of the new year. For the second year straight, Turnpike officials will increase the toll by 6 percent, and the toll is set to increase annually as the Turnpike tries to meet its goal to generate funds for transportation and infrastructure. Many trucking companies are not too pleased with the hike in price. They acknowledge that the highway needs improvement, but it will also have consequences. Many companies may not be able to continually afford the raising toll price, which will cause trucks to use secondary roads that may not be designed for large truck traffic.

Police in Bucks County have now identified the bicyclist who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver in Bristol Borough. 53-year-old Kevin Williams was hit at around 8 pm on Tuesday while he was riding his bike along Route 13 near Corson Street. The driver did not stay on the scene of the accident and still remains on the loose. Police are now searching through surveillance video from a nearby business to identify the driver and or the car used. They believe the car may have considerable damage done to the front. Police, however, found a decorative license plate with an eagle on it at the scene of the accident that may belong to the striking vehicle.
