Troopers Investigating Fatal Crash Near Milford

79

5The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a single vehicle crash on Bay Road (SR1) southbound, south of Cicada Lane that occurred earlier this morning resulting in a fatality.

Police state that preliminary investigation indicates the crash occurred around 5:40 a.m. this morning, Sunday August 9, 2015, as Mauricio G. Borda, 20 of Greenbelt, Maryland, was operating a 2003 Honda Element southbound on SR1 just south of Cicada Lane. For unknown reasons, the Honda started to drift off the east side of the road and into the center median. Borda then overcorrected and crossed both southbound lanes before striking a curb near the exit of the Shore Stop located at 1885 Bay Road. The vehicle continued in a southwesterly direction where it struck a small tree, a utility pole, and finally a large tree causing the Element to spin and roll over before coming to a stop.

Mauricio Borda, who was properly restrained, was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Milford Memorial Hospital (MMH) by EMS where he was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

Edgar D. Molina, 23 of Silver Spring, Maryland, was not properly restrained in a rear seat and was transported to MMH by EMS where he was later pronounced dead from multiple traumatic injuries.

Alejandra Uribe, 19 of Falls Church, Virginia, was not properly restrained in a rear seat and was transported to MMH by EMS where she was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident. None of the occupants were ejected. Charges may be forthcoming although alcohol does not appear to be a factor. SR1 southbound at Cicada Lane was closed for approximately two and a half hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
