Coroner seeks family of pedestrian killed on Route 30


The York County Coroner's Office is asking for the public's help in finding family members of a 69-year-old man who was fatally struck by a car Thursday night on Route 30 in Springettsbury Township.

Charles Frazier previously lived in the 200 block of East Philadelphia Street in York City, according to the York County Coroner's Office, which has ruled his death accidental. Frazier died of multiple injuries, the coroner's office said.

He lived in Harrisburg in 2014, according to court records. The coroner's office said Frazier also lived in Arkansas in the past.

Frazier was walking in the left westbound lane of Route 30, west of Mount Zion Road, just before 8 p.m. when he was struck by a Honda Accord Crosstour driven by a 20-year-old woman, according to Springettsbury Township Police Lt. Todd King.

"He was actually in the roadway," King said.

Frazier was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the coroner's office.

He was walking from the center guardrail to the north side of the road, King said, indicating he might have been crossing the highway.

No charges have been filed so far, he said, and the investigation is ongoing.

Pedestrian traffic is prohibited along Route 30, according to King, who said Frazier wasn't wearing any reflective clothing or gear.

The westbound lanes of Route 30 were closed for about three hours as police investigated, King said.

The accompanying photo of Frazier came from York County Prison, where Frazier was held in August 2014 after being cited by York City Police with public drunkenness and disorderly conduct, according to court records. He was found not guilty a month later, records state.

Anyone with information about Frazier's next of kin is asked to call the York County Coroner's Office at (717) 840-7617.
