Troopers Investigate Fatal Vehicle Crash at Construction Site

dspThe Delaware State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a fatal motor vehicle collision in which a male subject was killed that occurred at a home under construction early yesterday afternoon in Lewes.

The preliminary investigation has determined that the incident occurred on Friday, October 31, 2014 at approximately 1:40 p.m., as Tomas J. Godinez-Cabrera, 25, was operating a 2013 Chevrolet 3500 pick-up truck and was backing out of the driveway of a home under construction located in the 18000 block of Robinsonville Road, Lewes. As Godinez-Cabrera began backing, he failed to see a 61 year old Milford, DE man standing in the driveway behind the pick-up truck. The truck then struck the male victim, running him over. The victim sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Godinez-Cabrera was not injured. Both he and the male victim were employed by a Camden-Wyoming concrete company which was performing work at the site. The name of the victim will be released pending the notification of his next of kin.

The Delaware State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident.
