Mattew S. Leinberger, 38, of New Tripoli, escaped injuries in a one-vehicle crash April 13 at 6:06 a.m. on State Route 863 in Lynn Township, according to state police at the Fogelsville barracks.
Police said he was driving a 2009 Dodge Ram truck southbound, south of Scholler Road, when the vehicle struck a tree that was across both lanes of the road.

The vehicle came to rest on the east shoulder of the roadway.
