The driver of a pickup that crossed the center line and slammed into a box truck on Route 216 Thursday evening remained in critical condition Friday at York Hospital, according to a hospital spokesman.
A Codorus State Park ranger identified the driver of the pickup as 68-year-old Robert Trostle of Hanover.

The driver of the box truck, 27-year-old Simon Majno of Glen Rock, was in satisfactory condition at York Hospital. Majno's passenger, 32-year-old Lamont Holmes of York, was in serious condition at Hershey Medical Center, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Officer Paul Heffner said he was still investigating the crash Friday.

Thanks kindhearted for the update.
The Lemoyne Sleeper men will be in my prayers for a speedy recovery.
I hope Mr. Trostle learned a lesson not to pass!!!!

<snip> Best described he was passing on a blind curve, cresting a hill. Had to be drunk, on drugs, or just plain NUTS.
It couldn't have been a poor choice could it? It automatically was drug or alcohol related. Get bent you old bag.

Where did you hear this? Who did you hear it from? When did you hear it? Were they telling the truth?

Was this the word on the mean streets of Philly?

You are an idiot wrote:
Detailer...You speed up to see if you can hit them? How do 2 wrongs make a right? You are just as much to blame as the other guy. And who made you owner of the road? Want to police the roads, go become a police officer. And by the way, it doesn't sound to me like you drive defensivly it sounds like you drive offensivly.
Sometimes the best defense is a good offense.

In the words defensively and offensively, the "E" needs to remain. You wrote "defensivly" and "offensivly" which unfortunately is spelled wrong. Add the "E" before the "ly". Hope this helps.

There is a Robert Trostle 50 years old that has had a few DUI's and other problems with the law. Maybe the YDR got the info. wrong on the person that caused the accident.

yeah I'm not located in Philly just my IP provider. There is a chance it could be another Robert Trostle but I just know from a friend who was friend's with his son. He was known for his legal problems, cocaine problems, and was also quite known for his excessive speeding while taking his son and friends places. If it's not the same guy I'm mighty surprised.

That is why I like owning atleast one piece o' crap car. If someone tailgates, I slam on the brakes, if they pull out in front of me without stopping at the stop sign, I speed up and try to hit them...(or at least scare them in to thinking they could have been hit.) I drive defensivly, I always look ahead to see where I may turn or swerve incase someone pulls out in front of me.
it's my understanding that if someone were to hit you b/c you slammed on your brakes for nothing - the accident would be your fault.

again, it's just my understanding ...

the thing i do that REALLY gets to people is "wash your windshield" ...:) people absolutely HATE that ... and i just sit back and laugh!!

I hope everyone that had posted a negative comment will read this.
THIS Mr. Trostle was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness and reportedly BLACKED OUT immediately before the crash.
Sometimes we should wait to pass judgement until we hear the WHOLE story.
This was a sad, unfortunate ACCIDENT.

With no disrespect to Mr Trostle. people with illnesses should not be allowed to drive, for such reasons as this accident. His doctors should have taken his license away. It sounds harsh I know, but the truth hurts.

wow that's a way to make people pay not to mention you have a piece of crap car what if you wreck it and its your fault then how will you get back and forth to work? maybe that would be better to have people like you off the road.there's enough idiots on the road and you just make one more

I own the part of the road I am on at that time, if anyone tries to make me go faster by tailgating, or run a stop sign to get in front of me... it is their fault........ don't beleive me? Tailgate me or pull out in front of me, if I have the right of way, let the insurance companies fight it out.

Yes, this is sad but an accident? He should not have been driving if he had any medical issue. Period. My mother was given a terminal diagnosis - and stopped driving THAT day- WE made that choice for her, even though she was not happy about it and able to still drive. I certalnly wish Mr. Trostle the best, and pray all make a quick recovery. But he is still very responsible for this event - now, even more so. God Bless him and all the families involed. We can all learn from this event.

I apologize if I had a mix up in names, but it's hard not to wonder when the newspaper never fully reports anything or gives updates.

I dont think a spelling error is going to kill anyone unlike the moron in the red truck who passed on a double yellow over a hill.

I'm a friend of the person who was in the pickup truck. He's ill with cancer (lung) after being cancer-free for three years, and probably blacked out or became disoriented because he's on a lot of medication, plus he's 69 years old. I visited him in the hospital. He was asleep and is being tube fed. It broke my heart. I know he would not deliberately pass on a no-passing zone on a hill. He used to be an airline pilot, for a major airline. Those of you criticizing him are being judgmental and cruel. You know nothing about him. What does the Bible say? "Judge not, lest ye be judged."

No one died, "braniac." And I use that term loosely.
