A York County woman died Sunday afternoon after a two-vehicle head-on crash in North Hopewell Township, according to York County Coroner Barry Bloss.
Bloss said at 5:20 p.m. Sunday he could not release the woman's name because not all of her family had been contacted.
He added that an autopsy on the woman's body would be performed today.
State police, who investigated the crash, had not released any details - including if anyone else was injured - by Sunday evening.
Emergency workers and police were called about 12:50 p.m. to the crash, on Winterstown Road near Faraway Drive and Church Road.
The road in that area, flanked by farms and sprawling front lawns, has several twists and turns.
John Shelley II, who owns a nursery at 13579 Winterstown Road, said he learned of the crash through word of mouth and came to the road to take a look.
Shelley said that, years ago, there were several severe crashes in the area.
"Back in '90, '91 . . . there must've been four or five wrecks during the six months we were under construction," he said. "That whole summer, it was one accident after another."
Shelley recalled that people in "souped-up" muscle cars would race side-by-side on the country road, hit the curve just south of his business and roll onto their roofs.
"We had to go running down the road with fire extinguishers," he said. "We had to kick the windows out, and pull them out of there."
He said that, after those crashes, troopers and North Hopewell Township police officers patrolled the road on a regular basis, which cut down on the speeding and, ultimately, the crashes.
"This is the first one I've seen in years," he said.
