The Delaware State Police are investigating a single-car fatal crash that occurred last night in Delmar that left one man dead.

On November 11, 2023, at approximately 11:34 p.m., a white 2006 Cadillac STS was traveling at a high rate of speed westbound on Whitesville Road, east of Whaley’s Road. For reasons under investigation, the driver failed to maintain control of the car and allowed it to rotate counterclockwise as it slid off the roadway. After exiting the roadway, the Cadillac struck multiple trees and continued to violently rotate, during which the front right passenger was ejected from the car. The passenger came to rest inside the wooded area near the south edge of the roadway.
