Single Vehicle Crash Claims Life

 

 

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a single vehicle crash which claimed the life of a Milford man last night.

The initial investigation has determined that the crash occurred at approximately 6:54 p.m. on Saturday, March 11, 2017, as Mark A. Harris, 54, was operating a 2005 Toyota RAV 4 and was traveling in a northbound direction on North Old State Road at a high rate of speed. Harris was unable to negotiate a moderate left hand curve as he approached Susquehanna Avenue, which caused his vehicle to exit the east edge of the roadway. The driver’s side of the Toyota then struck a tree, trapping Harris in the car.

Mark Harris, who was not properly restrained at the time of the crash, was pronounced dead at the scene. It is unknown if alcohol or drug use was a factor in the crash.

North Old State Road between Susquehanna Road and McCoy Street were closed for approximately 3.5 hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.

This crash remains under investigation by the Delaware State Police.
