State Police Investigating Fatal Pedestrian Collision

Staff WriterPolice & Fire, RSS

The Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal collision involving a pedestrian that occurred in a Millsboro parking lot on Friday afternoon.

On February 3, 2023, at approximately 12:44 p.m., a white 2013 Jeep Wrangler had come to stop at a stop sign in the parking lot of the Back Bay Shopping Center, located at the intersection of John J. Williams Highway and Bay Farm Road. At this time, a woman walked in front of the Jeep just as the driver began moving forward from the stop sign. As a result, the front of the Jeep struck the woman at a very low speed, causing the victim to fall to the ground.

The driver of the Jeep, a 60-year-old woman from Millsboro, Delaware, was not injured. The pedestrian who was struck, a 62-year-old woman from Georgetown, Delaware, was taken to an area hospital via helicopter for serious injuries. She later died on the evening of February 5, 2023. Identification of the victim is pending notification to her family and relatives.

No other vehicles were involved in this crash. No roadways were closed as a result of the collision.

Burns by calling 302-703-3269. 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.
