State Police troopers say a tractor-trailer rollover in which a Michigan man was injured was instigated when the driver reached down to retrieve a dropped cigarette.

71 year-old Charles Harrison, from Newaygo, Michigan, was taken to Grove City Medical Center after the crash early Friday morning on Interstate 80 in Scrubgrass Township in southern Venango County.  Troopers say Harrison reached for his falling cigarette, his rig traveled onto the median, and the vehicle rolled over and came to rest on the driver’s side.

Injuries were described as “moderate.”  No other vehicles were involved.
