Simon is also believed to be the driver of a pickup truck that ran off the 27-hundred block of Church Road into the roadside ditch on November 23rd. A passenger, 29-year-old Eric Childers of Church Road, was taken to Salem Township Hospital for treatment of facial injuries and was later released. Deputies say the pickup owned by Simon did not sustain any damage in the crash.
