NEW HOLLAND - A 60-year-old New Holland man was hit by a car driven by another borough resident early Saturday morning, Sept. 13, according to New Holland Police.

Reports from New Holland Police Officers Jed Custer and Troy Deshong say that they responded to a call of a pedestrian struck in the 300 block of West Main Street in New Holland at 12:48 a.m. Saturday.

Upon arriving at the scene, the officers found a 60-year-old resident of that block had been struck by a car leaving the parking lot of Palermo's Pizza. The vehicle reportedly fled the scene following the incident.

The man suffered only minor injuries, police say, and refused EMS treatment.

Officer Custer located the vehicle at an address on the first block of Brimmer, where he found the driver, identified by police as 50-year-old Pauline Zwally of New Holland.

Zwally was reportedly intoxicated and was taken to Ephrata Community Hospital for blood alcohol testing. The results of those tests were still pending as of Saturday.

Charges of accidents involving injuries, duty to report and a number of other charges are pending against Zwally, and the investigation continues, police say.

When police found the vehicle at Zwally's address, they also discovered two 14-year-old males at the residence. Police say that the two juveniles were in the car with her at the time of the incident and that they were found to have been drinking. Both were sent summons for underage drinking.
