On December 4, 2022, at approximately 6:28 p.m., a silver 2008 Toyota Corolla was traveling southbound in the right lane on Bay Road approaching the intersection at Williamsburg Drive. At the same time, a pedestrian was walking eastbound across Bay Road’s southbound lanes and into the path of the Toyota. The pedestrian was wearing dark clothing, not carrying a light, and not using a crosswalk. The driver of the Corolla attempted to brake and swerve to avoid striking the subject on foot but was unable to do so.

The pedestrian that was struck, a 49-year-old Milford man, sustained serious injuries. He was pronounced deceased at the scene and identification is pending notification to his family and relatives. The driver of the Corolla, an 18-year-old woman from Wilmington, Delaware, was not injured. The front-seat passenger, a 17-year-old male from Newark, Delaware, was transported to an area hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

No other vehicles were involved in this collision. Bay Road was closed for approximately three hours while the scene was investigated and cleared.

Lane by calling 302-698-8457. Information may also be provided by contacting Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or via the internet at
