A Middletown man was fatally injured in a two-vehicle crash Thursday in Londonderry Township, according to state police in Harrisburg.

Grant J. Hostetter, 45, for unknown reasons lost control of a 1999 Peterbilt while traveling east on East Harrisburg Pike, just west of Cedar Avenue, at around 12:15 p.m., police said.

The truck overturned onto the passenger side across both lanes of travel, with the front in the westbound lane, and was struck by a 2006 Volvo driven by 47-year-old Jeffrey Lehman of Pillow, police said.

Hostetter died at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

Lehman was treated at the hospital for injuries he sustained in the crash.

East Harrisburg Pike, also known as Route 230, was closed for about four hours.

Police said the crash is still under investigation, and drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor.
