GREENCASTLE, Pa. - A second man involved in a multiple-vehicle accident on U.S. 11 in Antrim Township Friday night died Monday.

Joshua Lee Marshall, 22, of 11441 Worleytown Road, Greencastle, Pa., died at Washington County Hospital in Hagerstown of injuries suffered when his Yamaha motorcycle collided with a U-Haul truck as it attempted to make a left turn onto Pensinger Road.

Marshall and Mitchell David Trivitt, 21, of 60 W. Madison St., Greencastle, who was pronounced dead at the scene, were riding their motorcycles beside each other northbound on U.S. 11 when the accident occurred around 10:55 p.m., according to Pennsylvania State Police.


They had been best friends since the fifth grade, said Marshall's aunt, Mary Ehrhart.

The accident is still under investigation, police said. No charges have been filed.

Marshall had been a fan of motorcycles since he was a little boy when he started out with a mini-bike, Ehrhart said.

He was engaged to be married to Stephanie Stoey and has a 10-month-old daughter, Alexandra "Lexi" Marshall, Ehrhart said.

"Josh had so much potential and I think at the time of his death he had just started to realize his potential. He was a good father, he loved his fiancee, and he was a good son," Ehrhart said.

Marshall attended Greencastle-Antrim High School and later got his general equivalency diploma, his aunt said.

Trivitt was a 1994 graduate of Greencastle-Antrim High School.

He worked as a cabinet maker for Oak Tree Casework Inc. in Greencastle, and for Jiffy Lube in Chambersburg.
