Felton man dead after crash in Red Lion

RED LION, Pa. (WHTM) – A York County man was pronounced dead after his pickup truck crashed and caught fire early Friday.

Walter J. Fike Jr., 50, of Felton, crashed into a fence in the 200 block of Country Club Road around 4 a.m., Coroner Pam Gay said.

Witnesses pulled Fike out of his truck but he was already dead. Gay said the crash damage was minimal but the truck cab became fully involved in flames. She said it does not appear Fike was sliding or braking before the crash.

An autopsy to help determine the cause and manner of death is scheduled for Saturday morning.
