KINGSTON —District Judge Paul Roberts issued a search warrant to Kingston police for the medical records of a young man who police say crashed a vehicle into the DelBalso Ford Dealership building on March 21.
According to the search warrant affidavit, issued on March 25, police observed open cans of beer in the gold Ford Taurus that Tyler Troth, 18, of South Thomas Avenue, Kingston, drove into the building and that an officer smelled the odor of alcohol in the car and coming from Troth.
Troth was transported to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township, but police had no access to obtain a sample of Troth’s blood for a blood alcohol concentration test because he was being treated in a trauma room, the affidavit states. The warrant compels Geisinger to provide all of Troth’s medical records from March 21 to present.
