Fla. man loses motor home in Rush Township wreck

A Florida man lost his motor home but escaped injury Tuesday after his van rolled over in Rush Township.

Robert Pytel, 71, of Delray Beach, Fla., left state Route 350 near Firetower Road in his 2000 Ford Econoline at about 10 p.m., striking a ditch, state police at Philipsburg said Wednesday. As Pytel’s vehicle turned over, his attached living quarters separated from the van, spreading debris over a wide area, police said.

Pytel was charged with a traffic violation.
