Death investigation near Lycoming Creek Road

A death investigation is underway in the 2900 block of Lycoming Creek Road in Loyalsock Township, where a man’s body was discovered in a vehicle about 7:15 p.m. Monday.

 Numerous state troopers and fire trucks are on the scene, just north of Hays Lane. The vehicle is parked on private property, about 150 yards off of Lycoming Creek Road.

There is the possibility that an unknown chemical may have be involved in causing the death, investigators said.

 The county’s decontamination team has been dispatched to the scene in case their services are needed.

 Lycoming County’s Chief Deputy Coroner Jerold Ross and Jeff Hutchins, the director of the county’s Department of Public Safety, were among those on the scene.

 Investigators said there was no immediate danger to the public. The SG will have more on this developing story as details become available.
