Springettsbury Twp. man dies after crash
A Springettsbury Township man died at York Hospital after a crash Thursday morning, according to the York County Coroner's Office.
The coroner's office said in a news release Friday, July 20, that Samuel Moon Jr., 67., might have experienced a medical event before crashing into a tractor-trailer in the area of the 3600 block of East Market Street Thursday, July 19.
Moon crossed lanes and crashed head-on into a tractor trailer at about 9:05 a.m. Thursday, the release states. Moon was taken to York Hospital, where he was pronounced dead just before noon.
On Thursday night, the coroner's office tweeted that officials were trying to track down his next of kin. About three hours later, the office tweeted that his next of kin had been found.
An autopsy conducted Friday morning confirmed that Moon died from multiple-blunt force chest trauma while he was a restrained driver in the car, the coroner's office said.
Springettsbury Township Police are investigating.
