POTTSVILLE — Pottsville po­lice in­ves­ti­gated a crash that oc­curred in the 1400 block of West Mar­ket Street around 3 a.m. Fri­day.

Po­lice said Gina Watcher, 33, of Min­ersville, was driv­ing a 2008 Chevro­let Cobalt east in the left lane when she struck a 2014 Jeep Cherokee that was legally parked on the south side of the road.

The im­pact caused Watcher’s ve­hi­cle to over­turn and come to rest on its roof block­ing both lanes of travel.

As a re­sult of the crash, po­lice said, Watcher suf­fered mi­nor in­juries and was trans­ported to a lo­cal med­i­cal fa­cil­ity for treat­ment by Schuylkill EMS.

Po­lice said that Pa­trol­man Michael Mess­ner will be charg­ing Watcher with DUI, care­less driv­ing and not driv­ing on road­ways laned for traf­fic.

Pottsville fire­fight­ers as­sisted with spilled flu­ids and traf­fic con­trol at the scene, po­lice said.
