“This family has suffered and lost an amazing young man! Please help us help the family with this headstone,” the department posted on its Facebook page.

Dec. 26 — A dedicated 24-year-old volunteer firefighter who was engaged and planned to marry in the next few months died Christmas Eve when he was struck by a vehicle while jogging, his chief said.

Cory Haley was in training and planned to enlist in the U.S. Air Force later this year in the pararescue unit, North Hopewell-Winterstown Chief Shanan Poe said. Haley, who ran 10-mile routes and swam laps at a local pool two times a week, wouldn’t have skipped a workout, even on Christmas Eve, Poe added.

That’s just what Haley was doing Tuesday evening around 5:30 p.m., when police said he was struck in the southbound lane of Winterstown Road in the Red Lion area.

Wearing a reflective band and headphones, Haley was hit by a car driven by 21-year-old Briar Sullivan of Red Lion, according to York Area Regional Police.

Haley hit the driver side front and windshield, police said, and was thrown into the northbound lane into the path of a pickup driven by John Warner, 65, of Winterstown.

Haley was then run over by the pickup, police said.

He was transported to York Hospital where he later died in the operating room at 8:54 p.m., Deputy Coroner Claude Stabley said.

The cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma, Stabley said. There will be no autopsy.

The North Hopewell-Winterstown Volunteer Fire Co.’s Facebook page quickly filled with comments on Christmas morning from those who knew him.

“He was very dedicated with what he does,” Poe said.

The crash happened just in front of the home of another department volunteers, who ran outside to direct traffic at the scene. It wasn’t until paramedics arrived and turned Haley over that the firefighter realized who it was, Poe said.

His department has taken the loss to heart, he said.

“It’s a brotherhood and a sisterhood,” Poe said.

Poe described him as someone who was always willing to help. He took extra classes at the York County Fire School and always volunteered to help. He would text Poe every day and asked if there was anything he could do at the station.

“It’s hard on our members to lose someone so young who had so much potential,” he said.

What he’ll remember about Haley is that he had “the biggest heart,” he said.

Plans for a memorial have not yet been finalized, Poe said.
