One person killed in fiery three vehicle crash

Update January 22 6:12 a.m.:

The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office does not believe alcohol was a factor in a fiery crash that killed one person Tuesday night.

The initial investigation showed that a 2001 Chevy Blazer collided with a 2013 Ram 2500 pickup, causing a 2003 Toyota Corolla to collide with the Blazer. The Blazer was engulfed in flames, and the driver of the vehicle was killed at the scene.

The crash is still under full investigation, with icy roads expected to be a determining factor in the crash.
