Trucker issued citation

State Police Troop M, Fogelsville, say Dale A. Hudec, 56, of Atwater, Ohio, was driving a 2014 Freightliner Cascadia northbound along Route 309, just south Decatur Street, Lynn Township, when it overturned on its driver’s side 4:12 p.m. Feb. 4.

Police say the driver apparently failed to negotiate a slight right curve in the roadway and the rig overturned.

The truck came to a final rest, facing north, across the southbound lanes of travel on Route 309, just north of Decatur Street, police say.

Police say Hudec, who was wearing his seat belt, reported minor injuries to his knee and lower back.

He was evaluated at the scene by Cetronia EMS personnel and declined further medical treatment, police say.

The tractor was removed from the scene by Yocum’s Towing and Recovery.

Lynnport firefighters and fire police and PennDOT personnel provided traffic control.

Hudec was issued a citation and warning for having an accident involving an overturned vehicle and driving at an unsafe speed.
