Summit Hill man died trying to help at 309 crash scene

A Summit Hill man was killed while trying to help at the scene of crash Tuesday night in Lynn Township.

Lloyd Musick, 49,  was pronounced dead at 6:35 p.m. Tuesday at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest.

Two others were injured at the scene of the two-car crash Tuesday night in Lehigh County.

Musick had been a motor route driver for the Times News for about three years.

State police at Bethlehem said the incident occurred at 5:34 p.m. along Route 309 and Mountain Road in Lynn Township when a 2007 Kia Sedona attempted to cross 309 from Mosserville Road to Mountain Road.

At that time, the front portion of the Sedona struck the rear driver’s side of a 2007 Ford F-150, causing the Ford to overturn, where it came to final rest on its driver’s side on the shoulder of 309 southbound.

As a result of the crash, passers-by who were traveling in the area and came upon the crash got out of their vehicles in an attempt to assist at the scene.

A white minivan, traveling south on 309, struck three of the passers-by, resulting in one fatality, one serious injury and one minor injury.

Musick was transported by EMS to Lehigh Valley Cedar Crest, while the passer-by with the serious injury was flown to Lehigh Valley Cedar Crest.

The Troop M Collision Analysis Reconstruction Unit and Troop M Forensic Services Unit assisted at the scene.

Stews towed all vehicles from the scene.

The investigation is ongoing with the assistance of the Lehigh County District Attorney’s Office.

Musick's family has established a GoFundMe account to help with funeral expenses.
