A Springettsbury Township man was trying to help out a neighbor Sunday when he was struck by a vehicle and badly injured, police said.

Jason Taylor, 37, suffered life-threatening injuries when he was hit in the 3100 block of Druck Valley Road about 7:15 p.m., according to Springettsbury Township Police.

Lt. Tony Beam said an unidentified man was riding a lawn tractor from one property to another in the block when it became stuck on a raised curb.

Taylor saw what was going on and tried to help the man free the lawn tractor, according to the lieutenant.

It's unclear whether Taylor was on the roadway or on the shoulder when he was struck by an oncoming vehicle, Beam said.

Taylor was taken to York Hospital for  life-threatening injuries, police said.

Taylor's condition could not be obtained Tuesday from a York Hospital spokesman.

The driver of the vehicle that struck Taylor remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators, Beam said.

Anyone who witnessed the crash can call police at 717-757-3525.
