YORK HAVEN, Pa. (WHTM) -

Investigators on Wednesday returned to the scene of a Father's Day crash that killed a York County high school graduate and injured his twin brother.

Newberry Township police took measurements at the site in the 2900 block of Old Trail Road and removed a large rock that 18-year-old Jacob Hershey hit before the Chevrolet Corvette he was driving overturned onto its roof and caught fire.

Joshua Hershey, who graduated with his brother from Red Land High School on June 6, was thrown from the car and died at the scene.

Police said speed may have been a factor and weighing the rock could answer some of their questions.

"The reconstruction, there's a lot of math that goes into those equations to come out with the answer to some of those questions, and it's very important to know the weight, specifically today, of that rock," Newberry police Detective Braxton Ditty said.

A memorial ceremony will be held at the crash site Wednesday evening beginning at 8 p.m. Police said those attending the memorial should carpool due to the limited parking space available.

Police and fire department personnel will be providing traffic control and safety in the area during the ceremony.
