Date Posted: Sunday, October 17th, 2021

US13 and Llangollen

New Castle – The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal pedestrian crash that occurred early last evening.

Around 7:09 p.m. Saturday October 16, 2021 a 2007 Mercury Mountaineer, being operated by a 60-year-old New Castle man, was traveling southbound on S. DuPont Highway (US13) in the left lane. The SUV proceeded through the intersection with Llangollen Boulevard on a solid green light. At the same time, two pedestrians began to cross the southbound lanes of travel of US13 south of the intersection with Llangollen Boulevard from east to west and into the path of the Mountaineer. The operator slammed on his brakes in an unsuccessful attempt to take evasive action, but struck the two pedestrians within the left southbound lane of travel. Following the impact, one of the pedestrians was thrown in a southerly direction and came to rest within the left southbound lane of travel. The second pedestrian was thrown in a southwesterly direction and came to rest in front of the entrance to “New York Fried Chicken.”  The SUV operator came to a controlled stop within the roadway before eventually moving to a safer location on the southbound right shoulder.

The two pedestrians were crossing the roadway approximately 50 feet south of the marked pedestrian crosswalk located on the south end of the intersection.
