A Harrisburg man was killed in a three-vehicle crash on Interstate 83 in Manchester Township while trying to pass on the highway's berm, according to state police.

There were vehicles in the left and right northbound lanes of the highway, at which point Barton moved onto the berm and tried to pass a GMC Sierra at a high rate of speed, state police said.
But his front left side struck the back passenger-side tire of the Sierra, police said.
After the initial impact, Barton and the motorcycle struck a Toyota Tacoma in the left lane, at which point Barton was thrown, police said.
Concrete barrier: Both he and his motorcycle crashed into the concrete median barrier, according to police.
Barton, of the 3700 block of Sharon Street, was pronounced dead at York Hospital at 6:31 p.m., according to the York County Coroner's Office.
He was wearing a helmet but suffered multiple traumatic injuries, according to the coroner's office, which has ruled his death an accident.
No autopsy is planned, the coroner's office said.
The GMC Sierra was driven by Michael Crnovic, 40, of York, and the Toyota Tacoma was driven by Erik Jacobs, 25, also of York, according to state police.
