A 72-year-old Red Lion-area man died Tuesday, about a week after his car hit another car and then a building in York City, according to the York County Coroner's Office.


Ray A. Godfrey, of the 300 block of Winterstown Road, died at 8:12 p.m. in York Hospital's trauma surgical unit after a crash that occurred at around 2:48 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 16, in the 1100 block of East Philadelphia Street in York City, the coroner's office said.

Police said Godfrey was driving south on Hartman Street when he ran the stop sign at the intersection with East Philadelphia Street and hit a car traveling west on that street.

He hit the passenger's side of the car before veering and hitting the building at the southeast corner of the intersection.

Police said a passenger in the car Godfrey struck was taken to the hospital with moderate injuries.

Godfrey, who had been at York Hospital since the crash, died of multiple blunt-force trauma, according to the coroner's office.

There will be no autopsy.

York City Police continue to investigate; anyone with information is encouraged to call the department at 846-1234.
