State Police Asking for Witnesses Following Deadly Crash Near Houston

The Delaware State Police are investigating a two-vehicle fatal crash near Houston that left a woman dead last night.

On March 26, 2024, at approximately 9:24 p.m., a 2019 Kia Sportage was traveling northbound on Broad Street approaching the stop sign at Milford-Harrington Highway. At the same time, a 2006 Kenworth dump truck was traveling eastbound on Milford-Harrington Highway approaching Broad Street, which is a throughway. For reasons under investigation, the driver of the Kia didn’t remain stopped at the stop sign and entered the intersection directly into the path of the dump truck. As a result, the front of the dump truck struck the left side of the Kia.

The driver of the dump truck, a 59-year-old man from Harrington, Delaware, was not injured. The driver of the Kia, an 85-year-old woman from Magnolia, Delaware, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name is being withheld until her family is notified.

The roadway was closed for approximately four and a half hours while the scene was investigated and cleared.
