The Jeep went onto the south shoulder where it struck the guiderail, then rolled over onto the driver's side. The Jeep came to rest in a field.

Smith was injured and taken to the Lehigh Valley Hospital, Salisbury Township, by New Ringgold ambulance for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, troopers said. Smith was cited for driving on roadways laned for traffic.
