A Lewisberry teenager died Sunday night after the vehicle she was riding in struck a tree in Fairview Township, according to the York County Coroner's Office.

Emily Groft, 17, of the 200 block of Market Street, was pronounced dead at the scene of the single-vehicle crash, which occurred in the 400 block of Big Spring Road, according to the coroner's office.

Groft, a senior at Red Land High School, was wearing her seat belt when she died in the crash, according to a news release from Fairview Township Police.

Groft died of multiple blunt-force trauma, according to the coroner's office. The crash was ruled an accident, and speed appears to have played a role in the crash, according to police.
