Shrewsbury Twp. man dies four days after crash

A 76-year-old Shrewsbury Township man has died from injuries suffered last week in a one-vehicle crash, according to the York County Coroner’s Office.

James Norton, of the 12000 block of Reservoir Road, was pronounced dead at 3:40 p.m. Sunday at York Hospital, four days after the crash, the coroner’s office said in a news release.

The coroner’s office said Norton appears to have experienced a medical event just after  6 p.m. Wednesday that caused him to lose control of his vehicle and hit a tree on his property in Shrewsbury Township.

There were no passengers in the vehicle, which suffered significant damage, and Norton was not wearing a seat belt, the release said.

The coroner’s office said there will be no autopsy and state police are investigating.
