A Pottsville man was injured after he was ejected in a crash on Friday.

According to Pottsville Police, on December 23, 2022, around 5:30pm, City police, fire and EMS were dispatched to a report of a vehicle that crashed and went down an embankment in the 400 block of South Centre St.

Officers arrived in the area to find a 2006 Dodge Durango on its side and partially suspended between a wall and a tree stump.

City police immediately made an emergency extrication of the male operator, pulling him from under the vehicle and dragging him to a safe location, due to the instability of the vehicle.
