A Schuylkill County driver is facing a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) following a one vehicle crash that occurred about 2:26 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25, along South Goodspring Road (SR125), in Hegins Township.

State police at Schuylkill Haven said Ogbogu E. Jukpor, 35, of Valley View, was driving a 2006 Honda sedan northbound near Barnes Road, when he said he swerved to avoid a deer. The car went onto the east berm and struck the front porch of the residence at 487 Goodspring Road.

Upon impact the car then spun back onto the road and came to rest blocking both lanes of travel.

Jukpor, who sustained a minor injury, was found to be under the influence and was placed under arrest for DUI. The DUI charge is pending blood test results, troopers said. Damages were disabling to the vehicle.
