Police say 46-year-old William C. Baughman, of Morrisdale, Pa., was traveling north on Camp Mountain Run Road, 1/10 mile north of the boy scout camp.

According to police, Baughman dropped a can of snuff on the passenger side of the vehicle and reached down for it, taking his eyes off the roadway.

His 2006 Jeep Wrangler traveled across the roadway onto the grassy berm, then traveled in a northern direction in the grassy area for approximately 80 feet, police say.

The vehicle’s left front then impacted into a tree and traveled north for a few feet before the vehicle’s front impacted a second tree, according to police.

At that time, the vehicle came to a rest facing in a northern direction, police say.

Baughman was using a seat belt and was not injured.

He was charged with a traffic violation.
