Dillsburg man killed in Dauphin County crash
A Dillsburg man was killed in a Dauphin County crash over the weekend, according to authorities.
State police said in a news release that 52-year-old Louis W. Tolomeo was killed Sunday, Sept. 16, in a crash on Interstate 81 in East Hanover Township.
Police say Tolomeo was driving a 2012 Ford Taurus north in the right lane near mile marker 79 about 6:20 a.m. when he struck the rear of a tractor-trailer, which also was traveling in the right lane.
After hitting the tractor-trailer, Tolomeo's car traveled across the I-81 median and rested off the west berm of the southbound lane, the release states.
Tolomeo, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.
The driver of the tractor-trailer, a 53-year-old man from Whitehall, Lehigh County, was not injured, according to police.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call police at 717-671-7500.
