A former Lower Pottsgrove man, who was charged with DUI as a teen following a deadly crash, is facing DUI charges for the second time.
Austin Ewers was previously charged as a juvenile in a 2009 Chester County wreck that left two teenage boys dead and five others hurt. Police said Ewers, 16 at the time, was intoxicated while driving an SUV on Route 724 in East Coventry Township that hit and embankment and rolled over, and then hit another car that was coming in the other direction.
Now Ewers is being held at Lawrence County Prison for an alleged DUI incident that happened in the county back in November.
Ewers had been in a treatment program for the 2009 wreck, but the case against him as a juvenile was administratively closed Wednesday when Ewers turned 21. As a result, authorities in Lawrence County took Ewers into custody.
He is being held on $50,000 bail.
