*Update* State Police Investigating Fatal Crash-Milford


Date Posted: Wednesday, December 27th, 2017

CaptureMilford – The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash that occurred on Cedar Creek Road (SR30) south of Wilkins Road (CR 206) earlier this evening.

The incident occurred at approximately 4:40 p.m. on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 as a 14-year-old male from Lincoln was operating a Go-Kart traveling northbound on the shoulder of Cedar Creek Road.  A 2009 Toyota Camry driven by a 36-year-old Lincoln women was  traveling southbound on Cedar Creek Road approaching the Go-Kart.  For unknown reasons, the operator of the Go-Kart swerved to the left and crossed into the path of the Camry.  The operator of the Camry was unable to avoid the Go-Kart, causing the front end to collide with the right side of the Go-Kart.  After the impact, the operator of the Go-Kart was ejected and came to rest in the middle of the southbound lane of Cedar Creek Road.  The operator of the Camry continued southbound for a short distance before coming to a stop with the Go-Kart partially lodged under its bumper.

The 14-year-old operator of the Go-Kart was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 36-year-old operator of the Camry was properly restrained and was not injured as a result of this crash.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident. Impairment does not appear to be a contributing factor on behalf of either operator at this time. Cedar Creek Road was closed for approximately 3 hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
