Condition critical for Manheim man
Motorcycle accident in Penn Township
The motorcyclist, identified by as Brian S. Miller, 45, of Manheim, was taken to Lancaster General Hospital. Frieda Schmidt, public relations manager at Lancaster General, said Tuesday he remains in critical condition.
The crash happened at 11:10 a.m. at the intersection of Bucknoll and Holly Tree roads, between Route 72 and Fruitville Pike.
Northern Lancaster County Regional police said Miller was traveling west on Bucknoll Road. As he approached the intersection with Holly Tree Road, a silver Mitsubishi Outlander, driven by Priscilla June Sharp, 77, Greensburg, was pulling out from Holly Tree Road and entered the path of the approaching motorcycle.
An impact occurred in the west bound lane of Bucknoll Road causing Miller to leave the motorcycle and tumble to a stop west of the crash site, police said.
Miller sustained life-threatening injuries. Sharp, along with one of her passengers, Barbara A. Daugherty, 78, Greensburg, sustained injuries of unknown extent. All were taken to Lancaster General where Miller was admitted and Daugherty and Sharp were treated and released.
A third occupant of Sharp’s vehicle, Carolyn K. Riley, 72, of Trafford, was not injured.
The crash is being investigated by the Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department Crash Reconstruction Team with the assistance of the Office of the Northwest Crash Team.
Assisting at the scene were: Manheim Borough Fire Department, East Petersburg Fire Department, Northwestern Medical Services, Lancaster Medical Services and Warwick Ambulance/EMS.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation and further information will be released as it becomes available. Anyone with further information or who may have witnessed the crash can contact police at 722-0965 or via the department web page at nlcrpd.org.
