JACKSON TWP., Pa. -

A Swiftwater man died in a two-car accident in Monroe County early Friday morning, state police said.

Brian H. Campbell Sr. was driving a pickup truck in the northbound lane of Route 715, just north of Neola Road, in Jackson Township when he drove over the east berm, police said.

Campbell, 42, over-corrected, causing the truck to cross into the southbound lane, where Campbell's truck hit a van driven by Carl Lindquist, 30, of Stroudsburg, police said.

Campbell died at the scene.

Lindquist was taken by ambulance to Pocono Medical Center. A passenger in his van, Shelly Bolton King, 29, was flown to Lehigh Valley Hospital near Allentown, said police, who had no information about their conditions.
