A Carbon County driver was involved in a two-vehicle crash in Lehigh County. State police at Fogelsville said the crash occurred about 1:51 p.m. on July 20 at SR309 and Interstate 78, in Upper Saucon Township.

Troopers said Michael J. Searfoss, 44, of Lehighton, driving a 2009 Toyota Camry, was entering I-78 from 309 while Jorge E. Dutan, 34, of Hackensack, N.J., operating a 2007 Sterling truck, was in the right late westbound on I-78.

Troopers said the Camry struck the right side of the truck which caused it to rotate counter-clockwise and strike the median wall with its back end.

The Camry came to rest against the median. The truck came to a controlled stop along the left shoulder, troopers said.

No one was injured.
