Emergency personnel are on the scene of a traffic accident at Route 322 at Route 272. 

A second person died of injuries sustained in a September crash in Ephrata.

Ana E. Stanke, 31, of Ephrata, died at a long-term care facility in Cumberland County Oct. 16, according to coroner Charley Hall. Her death was ruled accidental and caused by multiple traumatic injuries, he said.

The accident happened when Alyssa K. Nolt, 21, of Denver, pulled her SUV onto West Main Street from Lancaster Avenue and collided with a westbound sedan driven by Stanke at around 9:19 a.m. Sept. 7, according to Ephrata police Sgt. Philip Snavely.

The collision sent the sedan into the opposing lane of travel where it struck an eastbound tractor-trailer operated by David A. Kreider, 45, of Easton, police said.

A passenger in Stanke's car, Thomas Michael Bupp, 54, of Lebanon, died at a hospital later that day, according to officials. 

He died of multiple traumatic injuries and his death was also ruled accidental, according to Lancaster County Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni.

Stanke was taken to Lancaster General Hospital after the crash and then transferred to Foxsubacute in Cumberland County.

Nolt was treated at the scene and released while Kreider was checked at Wellspan Ephrata Community Hospital and released, Ephrata police Chief Bill Harvey said.

Snavely said on Oct. 30 that the investigation into the collision is still ongoing. No charges have been filed to date.
