Staff WriterPolice & Fire, RSS

The Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal single-vehicle collision that occurred outside of Hartly last night.

On March 10, 2023, at approximately 8:53 p.m., a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo was traveling southbound at a high rate of speed on Bryants Corner Road south of Pine Tree Road. The driver of the Rodeo failed to negotiate a curve, and as a result the car exited the roadway and struck a wooden post next to a private driveway. The car then spun back onto Bryants Corner Road and came to a stop partially off the road.

The driver of the Rodeo, who has yet to be identified, was not wearing his seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene. No other vehicles were involved in this incident. The roadway was closed for approximately three hours while the scene was investigated and cleared.
