LEWIS TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Homicide charges have been filed against a woman after state police say she hit and killed a man with a car in Lycoming County.
Troopers were called to a home along Route 14 near Trout Run just after 2 a.m. Saturday. That's where they found the body of Luke Beatty, 25, in his driveway. Investigators are calling his death a homicide. They believe a vehicle hit him, killing him.
Saturday night, state police charged Fallon Davis, 21, of Morris, with homicide by vehicle, third degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and aggravated assault by vehicle.
State police have not yet said how the two knew each other. According to their social media profiles, however, the two had been in a relationship.
People who knew Beatty say his death is shocking.
"He was cool, and I just didn't know what to think. It was crazy," said Jacob Fedinez of Trout Run.
"It was kind of sad and heartbreaking, and I didn't believe it at first, and I thought, 'Wow, this is real,' " said Mackenzie Livermore of Trout Run.
Livermore says Beatty and his mother used to babysit her.
"He was very funny, outgoing, and everyone did like him. He was a very likeable person, and he was very nice to be around," Livermore added.
"It kind of surprised me that it happened at home and not like somewhere else. Like when you think about being at home, you think about being safe, not having something happen," said Fedinez.
Davis is locked up in Lycoming County without bail. An autopsy on Beatty has been scheduled for Monday morning.
