GORDONVILLE, Pa. (AP) -- State police report a fourth person has died as a result of an accident that killed three Amish men in south-central Pennsylvania.

The Berks County coroner says 20-year-old Amos Beiler, of Kinzers, died Sunday at Reading Hospital two days after 20-year-old Stephen Beiler Jr., of Ronks, died at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia.

The two men were injured in a crash involving two pickup trucks in Leacock Township, in Lancaster County, on March 29. Three other young people were hurt.

A relative says the other two who died, 19-year-old Mervin Lapp and his 18-year-old brother, Mahlon Lapp, were from Nickel Mines, the same community where a gunman killed five girls at an Amish school in 2007.
