Man uninjured as Jeep overturns
Michael B. Schott, 38, of Frackville, escaped injuries in a one-vehicle crash at 1:50 p.m. Dec. 27 on the Gold Star Highway (Route 924) in Gilberton.
Police said he was driving a 1998 Jeep Cherokee southbound from the on-ramp entering Rt. 924 when there were pockets of slush on the roadway. Police said he failed to negotiate a right curve causing the vehicle to travel southwest off the roadway where its front section hit an embankment and the vehicle overturned. It came to rest on its passenger's side on the shoulder of the road, facing north.
Police said Schott will be cited as a result of the accident.
