A man died in a two-vehicle crash Monday afternoon in Peach Bottom Township. 

The crash occurred around 2:30 p.m. in the 6900 block of Woodbine Road. The man was found dead when first responders arrived, state police said. 

The road was closed while troopers investigated the crash. 

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.

Police on the scene said the man was driving a Nissan Rogue south on Woodbine and crossed the double line, crashing head-on into a Dodge Caravan carrying two people, according to a report from the York County Coroner’s Office.
