Chester County man dies in Lancaster County crash

A Monday morning crash in Lancaster County involving two vehicles claims the life of a Chester County man. Pennsylvania State Police say Matthew Keebler, 37, of Oxford was driving a 1998 Honda Civic, northbound on Route 272, the Nottingham Road, in Little Britain Township, at about 9:37 am, when he drifted into the southbound lane.

The Honda crashed nearly head on into a 2014 Volvo truck driven by Robert Van Dyke, 52, of Brogue, York County. The force of impact pushed the Honda backwards. The truck came to rest on a dirt embankment on the north side of the roadway.

Keebler, who was not wearing his seat-belt, was entrapped and had to be extracted from the car. He died while being loaded on a medical helicopter. Van Dyke, who was wearing his seat-belt suffered a minor head injury.

PSP investigators say they found illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia on Keebler and in the car.
