Newark – New Castle County Police are investigating a fatal motor vehicle crash that occurred in the area of Frazier Road, near the Delaware/Maryland State Line, according to M/Cpl. Michel Eckerd.

When they arrived officers found a vehicle that had driven off of the roadway and struck multiple trees. The vehicle, an Infinity J30,was occupied by a 47-year-old female driver.

Shortly after a arrival, a medic from Trooper 4 (Delaware State Police Aviation), who had been called to the scene for transport,  determined that the patient could not be saved.
