    One Dead, Another in Custody after Altoona Crash

    One person is dead and another is in custody after a hit-and-run crash this morning in Altoona.
    Da Jour Sawyers, 19, of Waterloo was allegedly driving recklessly and at a high rate of speed eastbound on Eighth Street in a stolen Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo at around 7:30 a.m. this morning. Lt. Denny Parker of the Altoona Police Department said Sawyers ran a red light at First Avenue and struck a Pontiac Vibe heading northbound.

    Authorities have not yet identified the driver of the Vibe, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Very sad deal. Hopefully this mental giant never sees a day of freedom again and some dude really enjoys their new young girlfriend in prison.

    Very sad indeed. However, we don't know anything about this young man - who are we to judge he could have had a hard upbringing or been abused, or abandoned as a child. We can't judge his actions because we have not lived his life.


    j/k throw him in the hole and forget him...

    Re: One Dead, Another in Custody after Altoona Crash

    I went through that intersection less than 2-3 minutes before that happened. That is a main route for getting onto 80 to head into DM. I do not know the person that died.

    Needless tragedy,

    Re: One Dead, Another in Custody after Altoona Crash

    There is a picture on KCCI.com of the kid getting aid in the back of a police car. The house he is in front of, which I presume is the garage he hid in, is right across the street from the Altoona Polica Department.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?
