WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A 13-year-old Waynesboro girl has been charged in connection with a stolen-car police chase through two states that ended in an accident in the Smithsburg area on May 15.
A charge of complicity in the crime of fleeing or attempting to elude police was filed in the Franklin County (Pa.) Juvenile Probation Department by Waynesboro police, who allege she told the driver to flee and gave him directions.
The driver, 23-year-old Anthony Alfredo Saltalamacchia, was being held on $15,000 bond in the Washington County Detention Center on motor vehicle theft, theft, negligent driving, reckless driving, and fleeing and eluding police charges filed by Washington County Sheriff's Department deputies, who continued the chase after the vehicle left Pennsylvania.
The 2005 blue-and-silver Chevrolet Malibu had been reported stolen by Lisa Niglio of Edinburg, Pa., which is northwest of Pittsburgh, police said. Saltalamacchia had provided both Edinburg and 81 W. Main St. in Waynesboro as his address to police.
