Schuylkill driver cited after crash
One of two drivers involved in a crash that occurred about 12:57 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24, along SR61 at the Mount Carbon Jughandle, in Schuylkill County, was cited.
State police at Schuylkill Haven said Jason Gregory, 33, of Pottsville, was stopped for a red traffic light on 61 in a 2009 Jeep Liberty. Amanda Lawell, 27, of Schuylkill Haven, was northbound and failed to see the stopped Jeep and struck the rear with the front of her 2001 Hyundai Sonata.
Lawell was injured and taken to the Schuylkill Medical Center East, Pottsville. Gregory, who was also injured, said he would seek his own medical attention, troopers said. Damages were severe to the Hyundai and moderate to the Jeep.
Troopers cited Lawell for driving on a permit without a licensed driver and failing to stop for traffic ahead.
