Delaware State Police reported the juncture of 141 and Kennett Pike as the site of a fiery crash this morning, where the driver was killed.

Just before 6 am this morning an SUV plowed into the railing of 141 South in Greenville, killing the driver and engulfing the vehicle in flames. The accident occurred a few feet beyond the exit for Kennett Pike North as the driver approached the Route 52 overpass.  

Several crews and emergency personnel quickly responded to the reports of a vehicle accident with entrapment, including Delaware State Police as well as the Cranston Heights and the Elsmere Fire Departments. Unfortunately, they were unsuccessful at saving the life of the driver, whose identity has not been announced. 

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. According to reports, there were no other passengers in the vehicle.

 

In video generated by WPVI, which showed up on the scene as firefighters extinguished the flames, the silver SUV is a domestic brand, and it appears the license plate was out of state.

141 Southbound remained closed for three hours this morning as rescue crews worked to clear the scene. At 9 am, Delaware State Police were still on the scene.

The Cranston Heights Fire Department will be issuing a statement about the accident momentarily. We will update this article as new information becomes available.
