The Lancaster County coroner has released the name of the motorcyclist killed in a multiple-vehicle crash early Sunday morning on Route 30 in West Hempfield Township.
Stephen Elicker, 29, of Thomasville, died of multiple traumatic injuries, according to Lancaster County Coroner Stephen Diamantoni, who has ruled the death accidental.
An autopsy was performed on Elicker's body Monday morning, the coroner said.
A Thomasville-area man was killed and a Seven Valleys area man was seriously injured in a crash involving multiple vehicles in Lancaster County early Sunday morning.
Both men were driving motorcycles west on Route 30 when, about 2:10 a.m., they were hit from behind by a Hyundai sedan driven by a Dover man at Malleable Road, West Hempfield Township Police said.
The sedan flipped onto its roof, said Officer Ryan Draper.
Just after the initial crash, an SUV driven by a York man crashed into the sedan and one of the motorcycles, Draper said.
A 29-year-old Spring Grove man was pronounced dead at the scene and the second motorcyclist, a 26-year-old man from the Seven Valleys area, was taken to a local hospital, police said.
"He was pretty seriously injured," said Stephen Diamantoni, the Lancaster County coroner.
The name of the dead man has not been released because his next of kin had not been notified as of Sunday evening, Diamantoni said.
The driver of the sedan was also taken to a local hospital for non life-threatening injuries, Draper said.
Police were not releasing the names of the drivers involved in the crash on Sunday, the officer said.
