A Dillsburg teenager has been identified as the driver who died in a single-vehicle crash Monday night on Route 15 in Cumberland County.

Andrew Peterson, 17, struck the concrete bridge support of the Rossmoyne Road overpass in Lower Allen Township, causing him to be ejected from the car, according to Cumberland County Coroner Charley Hall.

Peterson died at the scene as the result of multiple traumatic injuries, Hall said.

Route 15 North was closed for several hours between the Rossmoyne and Slate Hill Road exits.
