• Preliminary hearing held for teacher accused of drunken driving


    BUTLER, Pa. - A Seneca Valley teacher accused of being drunk when he crashed his car into a creek earlier this year faced a preliminary hearing Tuesday.

    Investigators said Henry Stefanacci smelled of alcohol when they rescued him from a Butler County creek on March 3.

    Police said four teenagers driving by the crash site found Stefanacci in his car after spotting tire tracks leading to the creek.

    According to police, Stafanacci’s blood-alcohol level was more than the legal limit at the time of the crash.

    He is recovering from injuries sustained in the accident, and is on medical leave from his teaching position in the Seneca Valley School District.

    Channel 11’s Amy Marcinkiewicz reported Stefanacci attended Tuesday’s hearing with his wife.
