A Schuylkill County driver was involved in a two-vehicle crash in Lehigh County that occurred about 5:35 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 17, along Interstate 78 in Upper Macungie Township.

State police at Fogelsville said William J. Schilbe, 54, of Orwigsburg, and Kathleen M. Troiano, 61, of Flemington, N.J., were both eastbound with Troiano in front of Schilbe.

Troopers said Schilbe was traveling faster than Troiano and struck the rear of her 2006 Toyota PRI with the front of his 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe.

The two drivers and a passenger with Troiano, Thomas I. Friend, 66, of Milford, N.J., were all injured and taken to the Lehigh Valley Hospital, Salisbury Township, by Cetronia ambulance.

Troopers cited Schilbe for driving a vehicle at an (un) safe speed.
