A man and his son escaped serious injury in Kaska, Blythe Tonship, Schuylkill County, last night after their Jeep rolled down a 15-foot embankment. State police at Frackvlle and emergency crews were dispatched to the back of a home located at 210 New Philadelphia Road and Adams Avenue around 9:30 p.m. for a report of a vehicle down an embankment with injuries. The Jeep, with obvious damage to the windshield and roof, appeared to have flipped down the embankment one or more times from Adams Avenue, which overlooks the backyard of the home, and landed back on its wheels. Responding were New Philadelphia and Kaska fire companies. New Philadelphia Fire Police detoured traffic around the scene. No more information was available from police as of press time.
