The woman killed in a crash involving a dump truck and pickup truck just south of Willow Street early Wednesday has been identified.
She was Randall May Wilps, 30, of Muncy in Lycoming County, Lancaster County Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni said. A Facebook account that appeared to belong to her indicated she was a Quarryville native who attended Solanco High School.
A stretch of Route 222 was closed for much of the day as police investigated.
The two-lane road, a major north-to-south artery between Lancaster and Maryland, was closed between Otsu and Brenneman roads near Refton in Strasburg Township but re-opened just after 5 p.m.
Wilps was pronounced dead at the scene by Deputy Coroner Shannon Blosser. Diamantoni said she died from multiple traumatic injuries suffered in the accident.
A fire official said Wilps was riding in a pickup truck that struck a dump truck just south of Otsu Road at 6:30 a.m.
The driver of the northbound pickup truck, Kevin Grove, 34, of Quarryville, was unconscious when emergency crews arrived at the scene. Firefighters freed him at about 6:45 a.m., Refton Fire Chief Wesley Hicks said. He was taken to Lancaster General Hospital and listed in serious condition there Wednesday afternoon, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
The dump truck driver, Michael Martin, 35, of Ephrata, was hauling a load of blacktop material for CB Burkholder Homes of Ephrata south on Route 222, state police said. He was also taken to LGH, but was not seriously injured.
Grove’s pickup truck veered into the oncoming lane, causing the wreck on a bridge, state police Trooper Dawn Carpenter said.
Firefighters set up absorbent pads and booms to prevent oil and spilled fuel from reaching the creek. A hazardous materials team was dispatched to help with cleanup.
It remains unclear what caused Grove to veer into the opposite lane. State police are investigating.
