David L. Wynes sustained multiple massive traumas and was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not carrying any type of light or reflective clothing.

Both Kenneth E. Hedges and his wife, Barbara E. Hedges, of Seaford were transported by EMS to the Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries and released. They were both wearing their seat belts.
