The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal single-vehicle crash east of Seaford early Sunday morning.
Around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 13, a 31-year-old Bridgeville man was operating a 2003 Hyundai XG sedan northbound on King Road, just north of Dove Road, at an apparently high rate of speed. While attempting to negotiate a moderate right curve on a rain-soaked roadway, the operator lost control, causing the car to rotate in a clockwise direction off the east side of the roadway. The front of the Hyundai then struck a large tree causing a violent rotation, partially ejecting the driver while simultaneously striking a second tree before coming to a stop.
The 31-year-old operator was not properly restrained and was pronounced dead at the scene. His name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident. Alcohol may have been a contributing factor in this case. King Road was closed for four hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
