Lehr was eastbound on West College Avenue when his 2007 Toyota Highlander crossed into the opposite lane of traffic, according to a Northern York Co. Regional Police news release. 

The Highlander crossed over the entire westbound lane before going up an earthen embankment and striking a tree on the north side of the roadway, according to police.

The car rolled over three to four times before coming to rest, according to the coroner's release. Officials believe the driver, who was the only person in the car, experienced a medical event and that speed wasn't a factor in the crash, the coroner's release says.
