Troopers said Daniel A. Drakeford, 31, of Summit Hill, was driving a 2000 Chrysler Concorde northbound when due to weather conditions the vehicle went off the west side of the road and struck a ditch. Drakeford and passenger Jennifer M. McGuire, 29, of Jim Thorpe, were not injured.
Damages to the undercarriage disabled the vehicle which had to be towed, troopers added.
