Carbon driver in Lehigh crash
A Carbon County driver was involved in a one-vehicle crash in Lehigh County in which he was cited.
State police at Fogelsville said Anthony V. Barbaro, 23, of Summit Hill, was driving a 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor northbound on Rhoads Road, in Weisenberg Township, about 12:48 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 18. Troopers said Barbaro was traveling too fast for conditions and was unable to bring his vehicle to a stop to avoid a tree branch that had fallen onto the road.
Barbaro subsequently swerved to avoid the branch and traveled across the southbound lane and off onto the west berm where his vehicle glanced off a tree and then struck another tree where it came to rest.
Barbaro was not injured but his vehicle had to be towed from the scene. He was cited for driving a vehicle at an (un) safe speed.
