Published September 27. 2013 05:00PM

A trucker was injured when he crashed his vehicle along SR901 in Foster Township, Schuylkill County. State police at Schuylkill Haven said the accident occurred about 1:58 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Troopers said Gregory H. Krick, 51, of Hamburg, was operating a 2004 Sterling tractor eastbound and entering a right curve when the truck crossed into the westbound lane. While continuing to negotiate the curve the truck rolled over onto the drivers' side, slid across both lanes of travel, and came to final rest facing east on the westbound shoulder blocking the lane of travel.

Krick was taken by ambulance to the Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, for treatment of injuries. The truck had to be towed from the scene.

Troopers cited Krick for driving a vehicle at an (un) safe speed.
