LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa.– UPDATE: One person is dead after a four-vehicle crash.
On November 30 around 6:35 a.m., police were dispatched to a four vehicle crash on Route 30, just west of the intersection with Belmont Road in Paradise Township.
An investigation revealed that a Hyundai Sedan, driven by Curtis Harris, 23, of East Petersburg, a tractor trailer and Chevrolet Silverado truck were traveling east on Route 30 before coming to a complete stop for a red light at the intersection with Belmont Road.
