Driver cited after Schuylkill crash
A Schuylkill County driver was cited following a one-vehicle crash that occurred about 9:40 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10, along Darkwater Road, a quarter-mile west of Route 61, in New Castle Township.
State police at Frackville said Kevin James Fessler, 34, of Minersville, was driving a 1993 Ford Ranger pickup truck eastbound when he lost control due to ice on the road. The truck went onto the south berm where it struck a ditch and rolled onto the passenger side, coming to rest on its side.
Fessler refused medical treatment and the truck had to be towed from the scene.
Troopers said Fessler was cited for driving on roadways laned for traffic.
