A Fleetwood, Berks County, man escaped serious injury in Rush Township after his vehicle was forced off the road on June 29.

Kermit Boyer, 61, was driving his 1997 GMC east on Fairview Street at 2:57 a.m., when, he told officers, an oncoming vehicle entered his lane of travel.

Boyer swerved to avoid the vehicle but lost control and struck a PPL utility pole.

The SUV sustained considerable damage and had to be towed from the scene.
