Sheriff says Utica man killed in fiery crash just outside of York

{{featured_button_text}}

YORK — York County authorities say a 58-year-old man died after his vehicle hit a landscaping rock and erupted in flames.

The accident was reported at about 11:50 p.m. Saturday on U.S. 34 on the northeast side of York. The westbound vehicle ran off the roadway onto a lawn and then headed eastward and hit the rock. Sheriff Paul Vrbka says it appears a fuel line ruptured upon impact and the vehicle was stuck atop the rock when the fire broke out. The driver's body was found in the charred wreckage.

Vrbka identified the driver as Jimmy Winter, who lived in Utica. An autopsy was ordered.
