June 7, 2012 – The Hanover Evening Sun reports that a pedestrian was injured yesterday afternoon on Route 116 east of Hanover. A 20-year-old local man was taken to York Hospital after he was struck by a car while trying to cross Route 116 Wednesday afternoon, police said.
The man, whose name was not released at the scene, was trying to cross from the south to the north side of York Street in Heidelberg Township just east of Hanover around 3 p.m. on Wednesday, according to Southwestern Regional Police. He was struck by a Chevrolet Aveo traveling toward York, police said.
Police said the man had prior addresses from the Hanover area. The extent of his injuries was unclear at the scene, but police said a medical helicopter initially on stand-by was called off.
The incident stopped traffic along Route 116 near the Bair’s Mennonite Meetinghouse for about 45 minutes, until officers could clear the scene. The Aveo could be seen along the side of the road, and appeared to have a badly cracked windshield.
Police said more information would be forthcoming once their investigation is complete. If you have information on the accident contact the police.
