Emergency personnel were called to the bottom of Hometown hill around 2:30 this morning for a report of a woman trapped in an overturned vehicle. On scene, officers found a 2001 Volvo resting on its side. The driver was identified as Cara Eroh, 36, of Tamaqua, who told police she swerved to avoid hitting a deer. Eroh was transported, via the Tamaqua Community Ambulance, to St. Luke's Hospital, Coaldale, suffering from a head injury. Charges, including possible DUI, are pending completion of the accident by Tamaqua Patrolmen Thomas Rodgers and Thomas Duarte. Also responding were Tamaqua firefighters and Rush Township Patrolman Hess. Tamaqua Fire Police volunteers stopped traffic in both directions during the response and cleanup.
