A Lansford man escaped injury after his car crashed into the woods in Schuylkill Township just before 12 p.m. yesterday.
State police at Frackville said Chester F. Schaeffer, 32, was driving a 2001 Mercury Sable northbound toward Tamaqua on SR209, also called the Pottsville Stretch, when he veered off the east berm. Schaeffer overcompensated, troopers said, and re-entered the road where he lost control.
The car went off the west berm and struck a deer crossing road sign and some trees before coming to rest in the woods. Schaeffer was not injured.
