According to Trooper Dylan Houser, Parks was driving a southbound 2011 Honda Civic when it crossed into the northbound lane and collided with a northbound 2015 Dodge Ram pickup truck towing a trailer.
Then, Parks’ vehicle began to revolve the other way until coming to rest facing northwest. The horrific crash happened as the truck’s driver, a South Williamsport man, and his wife, a passenger, were traveling to a neighboring campground for the long weekend.

To assist with funeral costs as well as to support Tyler Parks’ wife Amber and his daughter Errick until she graduates from high school, Errick’s mother-in-law Tyler Parks set up a GoFundMe campaign.
I’m Amber’s mom. I am trying to raise money to help Tyler’s family with funeral expenses and to help Amber with Errick until she finishes school. Tragically yesterday while out East working Tyler was in a tragic car accident on his way home that took his life. My heart breaks for his family, my daughter and my grandson. No one was prepared for another life taken so young. Tyler loved Amber and Errick so much. The smile on Erricks face when he would walk in I will never forget. I pray for strength for all of them. I am asking to help give Tyler the resting place he would have wanted and Amber to have life a little bit easier for a while as she faces these tough days ahead of her. So please if you can help in any way please donate.
