The coroner's office said in a news release on Friday, Oct. 26, that Michael March, 49, of New Cumberland, succumbed to his injuries just after 11 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25.

West Manchester Township Police Chief John Snyder said in a news release Friday that officers responded to the crash just after 12:20 a.m. Thursday.
