According to police, there were no other vehicles involved and the driver was alone in the vehicle. PECO was called on a priority.
After power was secured, then a tow truck was able to move the wreckage. Part of the truck was tangled in a junction box which had to be replaced. A tree was snapped and pushed into a fence. The driver reported no injuries. He related to police that he was tired from working an 18 hour shift before the crash and was tired.
