Minor injuries reported in crash
A Chalfont man sustained minor injuries in a one-vehicle crash on Dec. 21 at about 9;30 a.m. at the intersection of Kunkletown and Weir Lake roads in Saylorsburg.
State police at the Lehighton barracks said John J. Mugavero, 48, was transported to the Pocono Medical Center, East Stroudsburg, to be treated for injuries, after which time he was then transported to the state police barracks where he was processed for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Police said he was driving a 2000 Ford Contour west on the Kunkletown Road when the operator lost control of the vehicle. It traveled off the right side of the road and went up an embankment, causing it to roll over onto the roadway.
Police said Mugavero fled the scene on foot but was located about 30 minutes later.
The vehicle was towed from the scene.
