The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal pedestrian crash in Lincoln.
The incident occurred on Tuesday, May 29, at around 11 p.m., as a 2009 Pontiac Vibe, operated by a 21-year-old Lincoln female, was traveling southbound on Marshall Street, just north of Johnson Road. An 85-year-old male pedestrian, also of Lincoln, was walking in the roadway. The driver of the Vibe failed to see the pedestrian in the roadway and struck him.
The pedestrian was wearing dark clothing, none of which was reflective, and was not carrying a light. He was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to the Milford Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving. His name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor on his behalf.
The 21-year-old operator of the Vibe was not injured and was properly restrained. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor on her behalf. No charges have been filed at this time.
Marshall Street was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident and asks anyone with information to contact Troop 7 CRU at (302) 703-3264.
