Jefferson Township, PA — February 8,2018, James E. Marsh was killed after being hit by a semi-truck while standing on the shoulder of a highway.
According to local media accounts, the accident occurred around mile marker 101.9 on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
According to state police, a semi-truck driven by Zekerie Warsame, in the course of attempting to avoid two crashed vehicles, ultimately collided with Mr. York and a passenger as they were standing on the shoulder, killing Mr. York instantly.
As mentioned, a pair of cars crashing in the area preceded the accident and based on preliminary investigations, appear to be a significant causal factor. One is reported to have settled on the shoulder and one, Mr. York’s Buick, was blocking two lanes of traffic to the north.
Injuries sustained by the passenger accompanying Mr. York, or by Mr. Warsame, were not reported.
