8-year-old girl killed in Colerain Township crash on Saturday

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Lancaster County, Pa.– State Police in Lancaster County are investigating a deadly crash. It happened around 1:30 Saturday afternoon, on Kirkwood Pike, near Spruce Grove Road in Colerain Township.

Troopers say a black Honda Odyssey mini-van with four occupants was traveling north on Kirkwood Pike. The driver of the mini-van, VikasĀ  Khana, 40, of Delaware, moved into the southbound lane, in an attempt to pass a white box truck.

Khana failed to see a red Toyota Tundra, driven by Jeffery Haas, 50, of Holtwood, with three people inside, that was traveling south.

Upon seeing each other, both drivers attempted to swerve into a field. The mini-van and the truck then crashed into each other, head on, just off the roadway.

An 8-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene. She was a passenger of the mini-van. Another passenger of the mini-van, a 12-year-old girl, is in critical but stable condition at Hershey Medical Center.

Five other occupants from both vehicles were taken to the hospital with varying injuries.

State Police have identified and interviewed the driver of the box truck.
