Monroe man killed in crash in Polk Twp.
Joseph Paul Hull, 21, of Kunkletown, died in a one-vehicle crash Saturday on State Route 534, Kunkletown, Polk Township, according to state police at the Lehighton barracks.
Police said he was the driver of a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado that crashed in the area of 191 Route 534, ejecting him from the vehicle. Police said Hull succumbed to injuries at the scene.
A passenger, Ashley D. Honey, 20, also of Kunkletown, sustained minor injuries in the crash and was transported to the Pocono Medical Center, East Stroudsburg.
Police said Hull was southbound on Route 534 at a high rate of speed when the truck sideswiped a guide rail on the west side of the road. The contact caused the operator to lose control of the unit, which left the roadway and rolled over several times before striking a tree.
