Delaware State Police have identified 59-year-old David Taylor of Yeadon, Pennsylvania, as the man who died in a two-vehicle fatal crash that occurred yesterday morning on I-495 in Wilmington. Following the investigation, troopers arrested 31-year-old Cameron Devine of Middletown, Delaware, for vehicular homicide and related charges.

On June 10, 2024, at approximately 2:12 a.m., a white 2020 International HV613 truck tractor, operated by David Taylor, was traveling in the right lane on I-495 northbound, north of Edgemoor Road. The truck, which was a United States Postal Service (USPS) truck, did not have a trailer attached. At the same time, a silver 2009 Nissan Altima, operated by Cameron Devine, was traveling on I-495 northbound approaching the rear of the USPS truck. The Nissan struck the left-side rear tires of the USPS truck, which caused the truck to overturn over the guardrail and down an embankment. After the initial impact, the Nissan struck the guardrail along the right shoulder before it came to a stop in the northbound lanes of I-495. Taylor was pronounced dead at the scene.

Devine was taken to an area hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. The investigation determined Devine was under the influence of a combination of alcohol and drugs at the time of the crash. After Devine was discharged from the hospital, he was taken by troopers to Troop 2, where he was charged with the crimes listed below, arraigned by Justice of the Peace Court 2, and committed to Howard R. Young Correctional Institution on a $10,400 cash bond.
