Minor injuries were reported in a one vehicle crash in Schuylkill County. It was one of two reported by state police at Schuylkill Haven.

She lost control and the truck traveled onto the shoulder where it struck an embankment. The truck traveled for about 58 feet along the embankment before rolling over onto the passenger side, where it came to rest.

Olechnowicz and passenger Jason T. Teel, 35, also of Pottsville, both sustained minor injuries and were transported to the Schuylkill Medical Center-S. Jackson St., Pottsville, for treatment. Another passenger, Malazia S. Teel, 4, in a child safety seat, was not injured.

Troopers cited Olechnowicz for driving on roadways laned for traffic.
