Man hurt in Coal Township crash
COAL TOWNSHIP - One person was injured in a two-car collision that occurred around noon Wednesday on Route 61 just east of Shamokin.
Coal Township police said an unidentified male was unconscious when they arrived on the scene after the man's black Ford F150 was struck by a beige Chevrolet Equinox driven by Lewis Anthony Jordan, of 474 Frack St., Frackville.
Jordan, who was uninjured, was attempting to move from the left lane into the right to make an off-ramp when the rear of his vehicle collided with the front of the truck. The truck then swerved and slammed into the cement divider.
Police said the unidentified male regained consciousness while being treated. He was transported via ambulance.
"I hope he isn't hurt," said Jordan, who was shaken but able to drive from the scene.
Charges of improper lane change are pending against Jordan.
