Coroner: Motorcyclist killed in crash did not have lights on

HALLAM, Pa. (WHTM) – A Hellam Township man driving a motorcycle with the lights off died Thursday evening when he collided with an SUV that drove into his path, the York County coroner said.

Jacob Billet, 61, was traveling west on Kreutz Creek Road and approaching the Route 30 ramps when the crash occurred around 4:55 p.m.

The driver of a Jeep SUV did not see the motorcycle as it began to grow dark and crossed an intersection in front of Billet. He crashed into the driver’s side of the Jeep and was thrown from the motorcycle, killing him on impact, Coroner Pam Gay said.

Gay said the SUV driver’s injuries did not appear life-threatening.
