Man, 24, killed in hit-and-run crash

WILLOW STREET, Pa. (WHTM) – Police are investigating after a 24-year-old Delaware County man was struck and killed in Lancaster County.

It happened around 5:20 a.m. Monday in the 2500 block of Willow Street Pike North in West Lampeter Township.

Police said Vince Nalencz, an employee with Eagle Disposal, was working when he was hit by a vehicle believed to be a Ford or Mercury SUV that did not stop.

The crash happened right in front of Shirley Metz’s home.

“[It] makes you sick in the stomach that it happened like that,” she said.

Police said Nalencz, of Media, was wearing reflective clothing. He was transported to Lancaster General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“I feel sorry for the people and the family, too,” Metz said.

Detectives said they are looking for a light-colored Ford or Mercury SUV with a roof rack that headed toward Lancaster.

Neighbors told ABC27 News the area is known for speeding, but police did not say if that was a factor in the crash.

Anyone with information is asked to call the West Lampeter Township Police Department at 717-464-2421.
