Sunday, May 14th, 2023 – The Delaware State Police are currently conducting an investigation into a tragic accident that occurred this morning in the Seaford area, resulting in the death of a 33-year-old man from Bridgeville, DE.

At approximately 5:34 a.m., a 1999 Toyota Corolla was traveling at a high speed on Hearns Pond Road towards the intersection with Conrail Road. The intersection is controlled by a four-way stop sign. Instead of stopping, the Toyota continued through the intersection and even went over a nearby railroad crossing, causing the vehicle to become airborne. After landing in the middle of Hearns Pond Road, the car started rotating in a northwesterly direction. It eventually veered off the road, crossed a ditch, and collided with a tree.

Unfortunately, the driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced dead at the scene. The authorities are currently withholding the victim’s identity until his next of kin can be notified.

The investigation into the crash led to the closure of Hearns Pond Road in the area for about 4.5 hours.
