A Luzerne County driver was killed in a one-vehicle crash along Interstate 80 in Tobyhanna Township, Monroe County.
State police at Fern Ridge said Abdul Charles, 25, of Wilkes-Barre, was driving a 1996 Saturn sedan westbound about 4 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 26, in the left lane when he lost control for unknown reasons. The vehicle spun clockwise about 180 degrees and traveled off the road and onto the north berm.
The car then struck a tree, folding the vehicle in half around the tree, troopers said. Charles was pronounced dead at the scene.
