Police Officer David Tome was struck and killed by the driver of a vehicle while investigating a fatal accident that had occurred earlier in the week.

He and other officers had returned to the scene to conduct an accident reconstruction on Route 15, near Clear Spring Road, in Franklin Township.

Despite having cones set out to close the right lane of traffic, Officer Tome was struck by an SUV and thrown over a guardrail. He was killed instantly.

The woman who struck him was talking on a cell phone and applying makeup when she struck him. On November 30th, 2010, she was sentenced to one to five years in prison, plus two years of parole.

Officer Tome had served with the Northern York County Regional Police Department for 5-1/2 years. He is survived by his wife, two children, mother, step-father, and sister.

In May 2014, State Route 116's traffic circle between Roth's Church Road and Hanover Road was renamed Officer David D. Tome Memorial Circle.
