Mill Hall Man Charged with Homicide

State Police say a Mill Hall man has been charged with homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence in a fatal 2021 crash that killed a Clinton County woman.

Troopers say Travis Bennett, 29, was driving Westbound when his vehicle left the roadway, struck several trees and went airborne along Penns Valley Road, in Haines Township, on August 18.

Authorities say the passenger of the suv, identified as 25-year-old Hali Harpster, died due to injuries sustained in the crash.

Police say Bennett admitted to using Adderall on the day of the crash, and investigators say that a container of suspected Methamphetamine, as well as drug paraphernalia, was found inside the vehicle.

Court documents show Bennett was arraigned Thursday on several charges, including aggravated assault by vehicle, DUI and reckless endangerment.

He is being held at the Centre County Prison, on $350,000 bail, with a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 15.
