State police at the Lehighton barracks said a Palmerton man sustained minor injury in a one-vehicle crash at 12:01 a.m. Dec. 13 on Stagecoach Road in Towamensing Township.

Police said Lester D. Steigerwalt Jr., 34, was driving a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 eastbound when he lost control of it because, police said, he was traveling at a speed greater than reasonable. Police said the vehicle traveled northeast across the westbound lane, spun about 180 degrees counter-clockwise and continued northeast off the north shoulder of the road, where it rolled over twice in a field and came to rest facing northwest.

Police said Steigerwalt did not require an EMS transport. He was cited for failure to drive at a safe speed.
