A Schuylkill County driver is facing a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) following a one vehicle crash that occurred about 4:25 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 12.

State police at Frackville said Charles Strouse Sr., 60, of Pottsville, was driving a 1996 Dodge Dakota pickup truck southbound on SR209 in New Philadelphia when the truck left the road for unknown reasons. The truck entered a large drainage area where it became submerged in a large pool of water.

Strouse was not injured. However, he was suspected of being under the influence and was placed under arrest. He was transported to the Schuylkill Medical Center-S. Jackson St., Pottsville, for a blood test, which he refused. Charges are pending.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by volunteers from the Cumbola, Good Intent and Kaska fire companies and fire police.
