In Brief | Former area woman dies in wreck

JOHNSTOWN — A former Johnstown woman died Christmas Eve in a two-vehicle wreck in Dauphin County according to a news report.

Cindy Dino Eisenhour, 51, was driving a Toyota Spider south on state Route 743 in Conewago Township at 6:15 p.m. when she lost control of the vehicle and spun into the northbound lane, state police in Harrisburg told The (Lewistown) Sentinel. Her vehicle was struck by a Nissan Armada.

Eisenhour was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to Hershey Medical Center with a minor back and neck injury, police said.

Troopers said Eisenhour may have been driving too fast on a snow-covered roadway. Both drivers were wearing seatbelts.

Eisenhour was born in Johnstown and was living in Elizabethtown. Her death notice appears on Page D7.

Drug suspect bit officer, police say

INDIANA – Borough police said a Westmoreland County man who was caught with drugs tried to swallow the evidence.

Police said they were conducting a drug investigation Friday in the 500 block of Gompers Avenue.

Officers said they took Kareem Middlebrook, 30, of New Kensington, into custody after they found him carrying marijuana. Officers searched him more thoroughly at the police station and  found “a large amount of heroin.”

Middlebrook fought with officers who tried to stop him from swallowing the heroin. During the struggle, he bit one of the officers, police said.

He faces several drug-related charges and a charge of obstructing police. Middlebrook was lodged in the Indiana County Jail.
