Laurel – The Delaware State Police have identified Miranda A. Daugherty, 18, of Laurel as the operator of a Kia Optima, who was killed in a single vehicle crash that occurred at approximately 2:53 a.m., Sunday, August 12, 2018, on Fire Tower Rd., approximately .4 miles north of U.S. 9 (County Seat Highway), Laurel.

The incident occurred at approximately 2:53 a.m., Sunday, August 12, 2018, on Fire Tower Rd., approximately .4 miles north of U.S. 9 (County Seat Highway), Laurel. A 2004 Kia Optima, being operated, and solely occupied by Daugherty, was traveling northbound on Fire Tower Rd., north of U.S. 9, at an apparent high rate of speed.

While negotiating a left curve in the road, the operator over corrected and the vehicle began to spin. The Kia proceeded to slide off the roadway, before striking a tree, where the vehicle came rest.

Daugherty, who was not properly restrained, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Cpl. J. Burns of the Troop 7 Collision Reconstruction Unit at 302-644-5020.
