The Lancaster Post of the State Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal accident that occurred Saturday morning on Winchester Road, just west of Carroll. According to the Post, a Chevy Caprice driven by 78-year-old Robert E. Walter of Carroll rear-ended a Waste Management Garbage Truck. 27-year-old Robert F. Reinitz, Jr. of Lancaster drove the truck. Reinitz had been stopped to pick up trash when Walter failed to stop in time and struck the vehicle from behind. Walter was pronounced dead at the scene. Neither drivers were wearing their safety belts at the time of the crash. The incident remains under investigation, although the Patrol says alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
