Coroner IDs 21-year-old killed in Shrewsbury crash
The York County Coroner's Office has released the name of a 21-year-old man who died early Sunday morning after a car crash in Shrewsbury.
Austin Lee Davis of New Freedom was the driver and sole occupant of the Honda Accord, according to the coroner’s office.
He was southbound in the first block of North Main Street just before 2 a.m. when he lost control and struck a tree, the coroner’s office reported.
Davis was transported to York Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 3:10 a.m., the coroner's office said.
Shrewsbury firefighters responding to the scene found Davis trapped and unconscious, according to a statement from Rose Fire Co.
Fire/rescue crews stabilized the car, then began the process of "disentangling" the victim from it, according to the statement.
Other firefighters stood at the ready with a fire hose, in case the car burst into flames, according to the fire company.
It took fire/rescue crews seven minutes to free Davis, after which he was rushed by ambulance to York Hospital's trauma center, according to the statement.
Fire crews remained on scene to clear debris and to help light the crash scene as Southern Regional Police investigated, according to the statement.
That portion of North Main Street remained closed until 3:40 a.m., fire officials said.
