Mike Green, 32, of Thomasville and Karigen Emig, 22, of Gettysburg, died on impact in the crash just before 10 p.m., according to the Adams County Coroner.

Green was driving his Suzuki GSX 13000R at a high speed while heading east on Route 30, state police say.

Green struck the driver's side door, spinning the vehicles onto Route 30 and pushing them several feet.

They were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Green was known as the life of the party and a bit of a class clown. A Facebook group with over 200 members has formed for friends and family to get details about his memorial and funeral services, as well as share their memories.
