Coroner: 17-year-old student from Northeastern High School killed in York County crash

CONEWAGO TOWNSHIP, York County -- The York County Coroner's Office has identified the high school student killed in Thursday morning's crash as 17-year-old Masey Rae Dacheux, of Dover Township.

Investigators say Dacheux was driving a station wagon on the 4000 block of Lewisberry Road when it struck the back of a F & S school bus.

Lt. Gregg Anderson with Northern York County Regional Police said the car became lodged under the school bus.

“The bus was stopped. The bus was loading a student from Northeastern High School," said Lt. Anderson.

Police say Dacheux was pronounced dead on the scene and the cause of crash remains under investigation.

“Initially looking at it, it does not appear to be a weather related crash," said Lt. Anderson.

Anderson estimated 10-20 students were on the bus at the time of the crash.

No one, including the driver, was injured.

Anderson also said both vehicles involved in the crash will be impounded.

A further investigation will try to determine if the crash was driver fault or vehicle fault.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the Dacheux. It can be found here.

Update (3:02 p.m.): The individual killed in Thursday morning's crash in Conewago Township had attended Northeastern High School, the school district's superintendent wrote in a letter to the Bobcat community.

"This afternoon the York County Coroner's office advised the Northeastern School District that the deceased driver of the vehicle involved in this morning's bus accident was a member of the Bobcat family who attended Northeastern High School," a portion of the letter stated.

Counselors and additional support services will again be available to high school and middle school students on Friday, Superintendent Dr. Stacey Sidle wrote. High school families will also receive additional information about grief counseling and mental health services on Friday.
