Milford, DE- The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash which has claimed the life of a 55 year old Milford man.
The initial investigation has determined that the crash occurred on Friday, September 23, 2016, at approximately 6:39 p.m., as Gary L. Ingram, 55, was operating a 2012 Kenworth 999 flatbed tow truck and was traveling in a southbound direction on Bay Road (US 113) south of Cicada Lane, Milford. For an unknown reason the tow truck gradually travelled off of the west edge of the roadway where the right side mirror and right corner of the flatbed struck a steel sign. The truck continued traveling in a southbound direction where it then struck a group of trees before coming to rest.
Gary Ingram, who was properly restrained at the time of the crash, was treated at the scene by Kent County Paramedics. He was then transported to the Milford Memorial Hospital where he was subsequently pronounced dead.
This crash remains under investigation by the Delaware State Police. Neither alcohol or drugs appear to be a factor in this crash.
Bay Road was closed for approximately 2.5 hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
