MIDDLECREEK TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A crash in Snyder County Tuesday morning left a state police vehicle on its roof.
It happened just before 10 a.m. on Route 522 near the village of Kreamer.
According to state police, Trooper Alexander Barretts, 23, was on his way to a different crash in Beaver Springs about 20 minutes away. Investigators have not said how fast the trooper was going but did say his lights and siren were on before his cruiser was involved in the crash.
Investigators said the other vehicle pulled out onto Route 522 into the path of the state police cruiser. The driver of this vehicle was Joshua Super-Scretching, 25, of Philadelphia.

Trooper Barretts has minor injuries.
The speed limit along that section of Route 522 is 50 miles per hour, but investigators have not yet said how fast the trooper was driving.
Super-Scretching was charged with misdemeanor Accidents Involving Death or Personal Injury While not Properly Licensed, as well as summary traffic violations.
