State Police Investigating Single-Vehicle Fatal Crash in Millsboro

Date Posted: Saturday, May 4th, 2024

Parker Road

The Delaware State Police are investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash that occurred this morning in Millsboro that left one man dead.

On May 4, 2024, at approximately 7:08 a.m., a 2002 Toyota Celica GTS was traveling southbound on Parker Road, approaching a sharp curve north of Firemans Road. The preliminary investigation revealed the Toyota was traveling at an apparent high rate of speed and failed to negotiate the sharp curve, which caused it to exit the east edge of the roadway. After it exited the roadway, the Toyota overturned multiple times through an open field, during which, the unrestrained driver was ejected from the car.

The driver, a 22-year-old man from Frankford, Delaware, was pronounced dead at the scene. His name is being withheld until his family and relatives are notified.

The roadway was closed for approximately 3 hours while the investigators examined the scene and cleared the roadway.


The Delaware State Police Troop 7 Collision Reconstruction Unit continues investigating this incident. Troopers are asking anyone who witnessed this crash to contact Master Corporal K. Argo by calling (302) 703-3264. Information may also be provided by sending a private Facebook message to the Delaware State Police or contacting Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-847-3333.
