WEST GOSHEN TWP., Pa. - Authorities have identified the man killed in a Chester County crash involving nine vehicles.

Police say Adam Swope, 38, was killed when his vehicle was struck on Route 202 in West Goshen by a tractor trailer that overturned and crossed over to the other side of the road.

The crash occurred around 12:30 Saturday near South Matlack Street. The truck, which was carrying frozen turkeys, burst into flames.

Swope was a graduate of Reading Senior High School with the class of 1997. His family is in the process of setting up a scholarship fund in his name at the high school. 

"Adam made a difference in this world and I am beyond grateful that Adam was a part of our lives," said members of the Chester County Democratic Party on their website. 

The stretch of Route 202 reopened Sunday morning after being shut down for nearly 14 hours.
