Couple injured in rollover accident


A couple was hospitalized after a bizarre accident Wednesday night in Schuylkill County.

It happened around 9 p.m. on Route 309 in West Penn Township.

A crew at the scene said the woman drove home after a night out because the man had been drinking.

They said at some point the man fell asleep, possibly leaning against the driver.

She then drove off the road and into a wooded area where the vehicle hit some trees, and rolled down a mountain.

The driver and her passenger were taken to local hospitals.

There's no word on their conditions.
