State College Resident Facing Charges Following Crash On South Atherton Street

State College police say a 28-year-old resident, Letra Renninger, is facing multiple counts of aggravated assault, simple assault, and recklessly endangering another person after a crash at the intersection of South Allen Street and South Atherton Street at 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday.

Renninger intentionally drove a vehicle into oncoming traffic and struck three northbound vehicles and then continued southbound until running into the back of a tractor-trailer in the parking lot of Faccia Luna, borough police say. The crash caused a closure on Atherton Street between Westerly Parkway and Pugh Street for about three hours.

In a release, police said the crash resulted in “several minor injuries and disabling damage to all the vehicles, except for the tractor-trailer.” The regional crash construction team, Alpha Fire Police, Halfmoon Towing, and Centre Life Link EMS all assisted police at the scene.

Renninger was arraigned by District Judge Kelley Gillette-Walker. Renninger was denied bail, and a preliminary hearing is set for 8:30 a.m. on December 14, according to court documents.

Anyone who may have more information on this incident is encouraged to contact the State College Police Department at (814) 234-7150, by email, or by submitting an anonymous tip.
