Another passenger has died in the hospital following a single-vehicle crash that killed three other York City residents, including a teen and a toddler, the county coroner said.

Christopher Heflin, 37; Devin Ditzler, 17; and Kayden Ditzler, 3, all of York City, were killed immediately in the crash, which was reported at 12:21 p.m. June 22.

The 2011 Jeep that Heflin was driving left the roadway on Pine Run Road in Hamilton Township, Adams County, and struck a tree, a report from the Pennsylvania State Police said. The vehicle then came to rest in a cow pasture.

The coroner's office reported that Vincent Martin, 32, of Volusia County, Florida, who was thought to be a passenger in the back seat of the Jeep, died at 4:24 p.m. Thursday as a result of his injuries at WellSpan York Hospital. No autopsy will be conducted.
