Date Posted: Monday, May 3rd, 2021

Middletown, DE- Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal single-vehicle motor vehicle collision that occurred Sunday.

On May 2, 2021, at approximately 11:14 a.m., a 2006 Toyota Camry operated by a 23-year-old male of Hillsborough, NJ, was traveling northbound on US-301 in the left-thru lane approaching the Jamison Corner overpass. For unknown reasons, the Camry drifted partially into the center median, then returned to the northbound lanes and traveled into a straight path towards the guardrail on the east edge of the roadway. The front of the vehicle struck the end of the guardrail, exited the road, and traveled down an embankment before overturning and landing on its roof. The Camry traveled a short distance on its roof before it came to rest.

The 23-year-old operator was pronounced deceased at the scene. Identification is pending notification to next of kin.
