Milton, DE- Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal single motor vehicle collision that occurred Tuesday night in Milton.

On September 14, 2021, at approximately 6:17 p.m., a 2009 Jaguar XF operated by a 36-year-old Milton man was traveling eastbound on Cave Neck Road. For an unknown reason, the operator failed to maintain his travel lane and exited the south edge of the roadway. After leaving the roadway, the front of the vehicle hit a road sign along a private driveway. It then continued traveling south before the front right struck a utility pole. The force of the impact caused the Jaguar to rotate clockwise and overturn.

The operator was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision. He was transported from the accident scene to an area hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

The roadway was closed for approximately six hours as the crash was investigated, and the roadway was cleared.
