A 69-year-old man died in a two-vehicle crash Monday night in Washington Township. 

The crash was reported just before 10 p.m. in the area of Roland Road and Hoffman Road, and Pennsylvania State Police troopers responded to the scene.

According to Pennsylvania State Police Trooper James Grothey, spokesperson for Troop J, the man, who was from East Berlin, was stopped on Roland Road at the intersection with Baltimore Pike. He attempted to continue east through the intersection onto Hoffman Road and was hit by another vehicle that was traveling south on Baltimore Pike. The collision caused the man's car to overturn.

The man, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:56 p.m. York County Deputy Coroner Michele Kirchner responded to the scene and certified the death.  

The man’s name was not immediately released pending the notification of his family.

Pennsylvania State Police agreed to make changes or consider policy revisions based on a state oversight committee’s recommendations, but they did not give up the ability to investigate their own.

Grothey said the other driver involved in the crash was taken to York WellSpan Hospital for evaluation of his injuries.

An autopsy has been scheduled for 8 a.m. Wednesday at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown to determine the man's cause and manner of death.
