The car began to swerve into the right lane and struck a 2005 Chevrolet BT365 truck, operated by Eugene K. Jones, 49, of Slatington.
The Mazda struck the left rear bumper of the truck with its front right bumper, quarter panel, and front right tire.
Aldinger, Jones, and his passenger, Barry A. Davis, were not injured. The Mazda had to be towed from the scene.
Troopers cited Aldinger for driving a vehicle at an (un)safe speed.
