A Schuylkill County driver was cited following a one-vehicle crash that occurred about 5:14 p.m. on Tuesday, May 15, along Sweet Arrow Lake Road, in Wayne Township.

State police at Schuylkill Haven said Christopher C. Schnoke, 18, of Pine Grove, was operating a 1996 Jeep Cherokee westbound when he failed to negotiate a right curve.

The Jeep began to rotate clockwise and went onto the berm where it entered a grassy area, traveled about 25 feet, then overturned twice while traveling another 40 feet before coming to rest on its passenger side.

Schnoke was transported to the Schuylkill Medical Center-S. Jackson St., Pottsville, for treatment of a minor injury, troopers said.

He was cited for careless driving.
