Knoebels Employee Struck By Vehicle in Parking Lot Late Saturday

Locust Township Police are investigating an incident late Saturday where an employee of Knoebels was struck by a vehicle in the parking lot.

According to police on Saturday night, on July 23rd, 2022, a motorist, driving a red Dodge Ram Truck, struck the employee while this employee was directing traffic.

Witnesses reportedly told police that the act appeared to be intentional, after the employee stopped the Dodge Ram and directed the male driver towards another exit gate.  The driver then "hit the gas", bumping the employee with this front of the truck.

After being confronted by other park employees, the driver and a female passenger got back in their vehicle, drove through a wood barricade and exited the grounds onto Campground Road, then turning right on Pine Swamp Road towards Numidia.

The driver was described as having dark skin, possibly Hispanic, with dark hair and a dark beard.

The Knoebel's employee was not seriously injured and was treated at the scene by park EMS staff.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Locust Township Police Department at (570) 799-5806.
