Carbon residents in Lehigh crash

Published April 29. 2013 05:07PM

A Carbon County driver, who with her passenger was reportedly seriously injured in a crash in Lehigh County early Saturday morning, is facing charges. State police at Fogelsville said the accident occurred along New Smithville Road, near Willow Run Road, in Weisenberg Township, about 12:35 a.m.

Troopers said Kristin L. Rowe, 23, of Lehighton, was driving a 2001 Dodge Neon northbound at a speed that was "greater than reasonable" for road conditions. Rowe was negotiating a curve when the car went onto the east shoulder and impacted with two utility poles.

Rowe and her passenger, Travis R. Workman, 25, of Palmerton, were trapped in the vehicle suffering severe injuries, troopers said.

Rescue personnel used mechanical equipment to free the two. Rowe and Workman were then taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital, Salisbury Township, for treatment. Assisting troopers were volunteers from Weisenberg and New Tripoli fire companies and ambulances from Cetronia.

Troopers indicated a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) is pending completion of the investigation.
