Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal crash that occurred early Sunday morning in Gumboro that left one man dead.
On September 24, 2023, at approximately 1:18 a.m., a white 2022 Chevrolet Silverado was approaching a sharp curve in the roadway while traveling northbound on Careys Camp Road just north of Little Hill Road. For unknown reasons, the driver failed to negotiate the curve, and the Chevrolet exited the roadway.

The roadway was closed for approximately 4 hours while the scene was investigated and cleared.
