State police at Schuylkill Haven reported on several crashes investigated by troopers on Schuylkill County roadways earlier this week.

A crash occurred about 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31, at the intersection of SR125 (Tremont Road) and Molleystown Road, in Tremont Township. Troopers said Tina M. Weinus, 37, of Pine Grove, was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Malibu southbound while Krina M. Dicello, 47, of Pottsville, was stopped on Molleystown Road.

Troopers said Weinus was passing a tractor-trailer in the right turn lane in an attempt to turn onto Molleystown. Dicello's vision was obscured by the truck and turned left and her vehicle was struck by Weinus's car.

Weinus sustained a minor injury and was taken to the Schuylkill Medical Center-S. Jackson St., Pottsville. DiCello and her passenger, Carmen A. DiCello, 77, of Pottsville, were not injured.

Troopers cited DiCello for stop signs and yield signs.

A two-vehicle crash was reported about 5:51 p.m. on Tuesday along SR901 (Golden Nagle Trail), in North Manheim Township. Troopers said Justin M. Olano, 30, of Valley View, was driving a 1992 BMW 325 eastbound and rear-ended a 2003 Ford F250 truck driven by Brian C. Shumacher, 40, of Frackville.

No one was injured. Troopers said the BMW had to be towed from the scene. Troopers cited Olano for driving a vehicle at an (un) safe speed.

A two-vehicle crash occurred about 3:50 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1, along SR183 in Cressona.
