ABBOTSTOWN, Pa. — Authorities say speed and alcohol were factors in a central Pennsylvania crash that killed two people, injured two others and sent one vehicle into the porch of a home, setting the porch on fire.
Northern York County Regional police said a sport utility vehicle failed to stop at a stop sign in Paradise Township just after 5 p.m. Friday and collided with an eastbound sedan, then rolled several times, came to rest against the porch and burst into flames.
Police said 98-year-old sedan passenger Carlton Jacobs died at the scene. A 71-year-old woman riding in the sedan and the 70-year-old man driving the sedan were taken to the hospital.
The SUV driver, 32-year-old Kevin Shaffer, of New Oxford, was flown to York Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
This story has been corrected to indicate the SUV driver’s first name was Kevin rather than Keith.
