A man who died in a crash Sunday in Windsor Township has been identified. 

Kirk N. Ruff, 41, of Red Lion, died as a result of injuries he received in a single-car crash in the 4300 block of East Prospect Road that occurred around 1:37 a.m. Sunday. 

An autopsy completed Monday revealed that Ruff died as a result of blunt force injuries to the head and neck, according to the coroner's office.

Ruff was a passenger in a 2007 Jeep Wrangler when the driver lost control and hit a telephone pole. Ruff, the coroner's office reported, was not restrained in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
