A Dauphin County man died last week in a crash along Route 209 in Porter Township.

According to State Police in Schuylkill Haven, the crash happened just before noon on April 8. In it, 79-year-old Horace Brandenberger was killed when his vehicle, for an unknown reason, veered into the northbound lane of the highway, near Tower St.

In that northbound lane, 60-year-old Dale Marks, of Tremont, was hauling an SUV on the back of his flatbed tow truck.

Police say Marks swerved in an attempt to avoid Brandenberger’s vehicle but they met in a head-on collision.
