Coroner's Office: Elderly Springettsbury Twp. man dies following crash


An elderly Springettsbury Township man hurt in a June 29 car crash succumbed to his injuries Tuesday at York Hospital, according to the York County Coroner's Office.

Guy Lawrence, 88, of the 100 block of Sylvan Drive, died after crashing his car in the parking lot of a shopping center in the 3900 block of East Market Street, the coroner's office said.

The single-vehicle crash, which happened shortly after noon Monday, June 29, was preceded by a "medical incident" that caused the accident, according to the coroner's office. But the blunt-force chest trauma from the crash was what "ultimately led to his death" more than two weeks later, Chief Deputy Coroner Claude Stabley said.

Lawrence was wearing his seat belt.

Springettsbury Township Police investigated the crash.
