If you have any information on the drivers involved, accident or anything else relating to this fatal tractor trailer car accident in York County please contact the police immediately. 

Officials are still working to identify a man who was killed in a fiery crash in Washington Township Monday afternoon, October 15, 2012.  "Identification was unable to be made at this time," Deputy York County Coroner Claude Stabley said Monday night. "Further investigation and DNA testing will need to take place to provide identification."

The man died in a two-vehicle crash on Route 194, also known as Baltimore Pike, near the intersection with Leathery Road, a few miles south of Dillsburg, about 1:30 p.m., according to state police.  The man killed in the crash was driving a Toyota sedan southbound on Baltimore Pike when it appears he lost control at a slight curve and went into the northbound lane where the car collided with a tractor-trailer, said Trooper Adam Reed, state police spokesman.

The truck hit the passenger side of the car, pushing its doors almost to the middle of the car.  "The car spun as (the driver) was losing control," Reed said.

After the vehicles collided, both the car and the cab of the tractor-trailer caught fire, Reed said.  The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
