Tamaqua rescue, ambulance, police, and firefighters from South Ward and Citizen's fire companies responded to a vehicle rollover just before 3 a.m. Saturday in South Tamaqua on SR309 near Owl Creek Road. While driving the male driver of a tan Buick LeSabre lost control, hit the northbound embankment, flipped his car and continued to skid upside down on the car's roof for about 200 feet. Firefighters and cleanup crews spent a good while clearing both sides of road of car parts, dirt, oil and snow that stretched the entire distance. The driver said he turned his wheel too fast after trying to avoid a deer that jumped out in front of him. Fire police and firefighters closed both northbound and southbound traffic during the response. No serious injuries were reported.
