LEOLA, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Lancaster man died after a three-vehicle crash Wednesday that injured seven other people, including three young children, on the Oregon Pike in West Earl Township.

James Murphy, 81, was pronounced dead at Lancaster General Hospital where he was transported by ambulance following the crash at 11:35 a.m., according to township Police Chief Brian Brandt.

Police believe 36-year-old Heather Zerbe of Elizabethtown pulled from a driveway in the 3800 block of Oregon Pike and was struck by a northbound vehicle, driven by 64-year-old Mark Tedford of Palmyra, which then collided with Murphy's southbound vehicle.

Zerbe and three children - a 5-year-old boy, a 2-year-old boy and a 3-month-old girl - and 63-year-old Audrey McGuigan of Leola were taken to Lancaster General Hospital for treatment of injuries, as was Tedford and a passenger in Murphy's vehicle, Margaret Murphy, police said.

Oregon Pike, also known as Route 272, was closed until 4:30 p.m.

Brandt said the cause of the crash is under investigation and witnesses are asked to call West Earl Township police at 717-859-1411.
