Prosecutors have charged a Pennsylvania State Trooper with homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence of alcohol.
Searfoss was coming from an annual charity golf outing at Five Ponds Golf Course in Warminster, which began around 11:30 a.m., the affidavit says. The “Bump and Run Golf Event” was a fundraiser for youth scholarships in honor of Phoebe Blessington, who was killed by a drunk driver in 1997.
The off-duty officer was traveling about 70 mph when his vehicle slammed into the car of 21-year-old Robin Taneisha Williams. A witness said a fire engulfed Williams’s car, killing her.
