A Lancaster man was killed last Sunday when he drove his 2006 Nissan Altima onto the other side of the road, colliding with an on-coming car. The accident occurred mid-afternoon, on Shiloh Unity Road.
Officers were called to the scene immediately, where the victim was pronounced dead on scene. His autopsy will be preformed early this week to determine the exact cause of death at the time of the accident.
According to the police report, the victim, a 56-year old man, was driving his vehicle around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, when for some reason he swerved onto the other side of the road and hit a fellow driver “head-on.” The other driver was a Lancaster resident as well, and was driving her 3001 Ford Explorer when the cars collided.
The reason the victim veered onto the other side of the road is still unknown. It was reported that he was not wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident.
