SPRING GARDEN TWP., Pa– Two cousins were killed in a car crash in York County on Sunday afternoon. The men were passengers in a car that was fleeing from police.
Around 4:30 p.m., officers with the Spring Garden Township Police Department tried to stop the vehicle in connection to a previously reported assault. The driver did not stop and instead sped off on Hollywood Drive. The car, a green sedan, then reportedly hit a curb, lost control and crashed into a garage on Second Avenue near Harrison Street. The garage collapsed on top of the vehicle.
There were four people inside the car. 19-year old Elijah Moultry, of East King Street in York, died at the scene. The driver and two other passengers were taken to York Hospital.
