Milton- The Delaware State Police are investigating a crash involving two pedestrians that occurred late yesterday afternoon.
The incident occurred on June 14, 2020, at approximately 5:24 p.m., when a 2019 Volvo XC60 was traveling northbound on Fisher Road negotiating a moderate left curve just south of US 9, Lewes Georgetown Hwy. Two female pedestrians were walking southbound along the edge of the northbound travel lane in the same vicinity. One pedestrian was walking on the asphalt and slightly ahead of the other who was walking in the grass area. The operator failed to see them and subsequently struck the pedestrian that was walking in the asphalt. It is unknown at this time if both pedestrians were struck by the vehicle or the second female was struck by the other pedestrian after the initial impact.
The 29-year-old female pedestrian was from Lewes, DE. She was transported to the Kent Bayhealth Hospital with critical injuries.
The 33-year-old female pedestrian was from Rehoboth Beach, DE. She was transported to the Beebe Medical Center where she was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries.
The operator of the Volvo, a 63-year-old male from Lewes, DE, was properly restrained and did not sustain injury.
Fisher Road south of US 9 was closed for approximately 3 hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
The crash continues to remain under investigation by the Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit.
