Coroner IDs trucker killed in Route 147 crash

The Dauphin County coroner has identified a truck driver who died when his tractor-trailer crashed into a home Monday afternoon north of the Clarks Ferry Bridge in Reed Township.

Coroner Graham Hetrick said he used dental records to positively identify the driver as Michael Bryerton, but he said Thursday that the cause of death is pending further investigation.

Bryerton, 68, of Dillsburg, went over an embankment along Route 147 before his truck crashed into a home and set it on fire.

State police continue to investigate the crash.
