SCRANTON — A city woman is suspected of driving under the influence after hitting a tow truck driver along Interstate 81 on Thursday night.

At about 7:15 p.m. , Johnson’s Towing employee Douglas Roberts worked to help a disabled motorist near mile marker 190.4 on I-81 northbound when a car driven by Melissa Martin, 44, of Scranton hit his tow truck, spun and then hit Roberts, according to state police.

Troopers arrested Martin on suspicion of DUI. Emergency medical personnel took Roberts to Geisinger Community Medical Center with minor leg injuries, troopers said.
