A York Township woman’s body went undiscovered in a field for several hours after she died in a crash early Friday morning, authorities say.

Zoraida Soto, 25, was driving a vehicle westbound from Lancaster County when she crashed through a fence along Route 30 near the Mount Zion Road exit sometime after midnight, the York County Coroner’s Office said, citing the investigation by Springettsbury Township Police.

The vehicle rolled several times, and Soto was thrown from it in the process. She died at the scene, the coroner’s office said.

Soto’s body apparently wasn’t noticed for several hours until a passerby reported a possible hit-and-run crash at the scene in the morning. When police responded, they found her body some distance away from the wrecked vehicle.

The coroner’s release shows Soto, of Coventry at Waterford in York Township, was pronounced dead at 7:45 a.m. The cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma injuries, and the manner of death was accidental.

The release didn’t indicate what caused the crash.

There was no autopsy performed, but routine toxicology was obtained, according to the coroner's office.
