A Ford truck was traveling on Main Street crashed into the car, despite efforts to swerve into the opposite lane, causing the car to rotate counterclockwise, state police said. After multiple hits against each other, the car struck a utility pole and came to a final stop in the eastbound lane of Main Street.

The truck continued to rotate until it struck an embankment and a road sign on the corner of the intersection before reaching its final spot in the grass just off the corner of the intersection.

It was determined in the initial investigation that the driver of the car was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. The driver, 75, died of his injuries. The driver in the truck, a 16-year-old, suffered no injuries and was transported to Ephrata Community Hospital for further medical help.

The Lancaster Pennsylvania State Police reported to the scene and continue to investigate.
