State Police Investigating Single-Vehicle Fatal Crash in Middletown

The Delaware State Police are investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash that occurred Monday night in Middletown that left one man dead.

On March 11, 2024, at approximately 9:05 p.m., a maroon 2008 Saturn Vue was traveling eastbound on Boyds Corner Road, east of Ratledge Road in Middletown. For reasons under investigation, the Saturn failed to negotiate a right curve and continued traveling in an easterly direction as it crossed the westbound lane and shoulder of Boyds Corner Road. The Saturn continued east as it exited the roadway, where it struck a utility pole’s support guy wire, and then the corner of an unoccupied residence. The Saturn ultimately came to rest after striking the residence’s large raised concrete porch.

The driver, a 66-year-old man from Lebanon, Pennsylvania, was pronounced dead at the scene. His name is being withheld until his family and relatives are notified.
