Police say a Lackawanna County man suspected of drunken driving was released in custody of his sister, who took his keys.

But four hours later police got another call. This time it was to a Covington Township intersection where authorities say the man crashed his car into a state Department of Transportation end loader.

State police say 56-year-old Daniel Corbett, of Spring Brook Township, was taken to Community Medical Center both times - about 2 a.m. Wednesday and again about 6 a.m.

Corbett had his blood alcohol tested, but a state police news release does not say what, if any, charges he is likely to face.

State police say following the second accident, Corbett was taken to Community Medical Center with moderate injuries. A hospital spokeswoman told The Times-Tribune in Scranton she had no further information about him.
