Stanton – The Delaware State Police continue to investigate a crash in which a pedestrian was struck that occurred yesterday evening near Stanton, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Jeffrey Hale.

Hale said the investigation thus far has determined that the crash occurred at approximately 7:53 p.m. on Wednesday, September 13, 2017, as Albert Tisdel, 57, of Wilmington, was attempting to cross the westbound lanes of DE Rt. 4 (W. Newport Pike) in the area of Rothwell Drive, in a northbound direction. As Tisdel stepped into the roadway, he entered directly into the path of a 2003 Chevrolet S10 pickup truck, which was being operated by a 17-year-old Wilmington male, and which was traveling in a westbound direction on Rt. 4, said Hale.

The front of the pickup truck struck Tisdel, knocking him to the ground where he came to rest. The operator of the Chevrolet was able to bring his vehicle to a controlled stop at the scene.

Albert Tisdel was treated at the scene by New Castle County Paramedics. He was then transported to the Christiana Hospital where he was admitted in critical condition. Alcohol use on the part of Tisdel is being considered as a factor in this crash, according to Hale.

There were no other injuries.

The westbound lanes of DE Rt. 4 were closed for approximately 1.5 hours as the crash was investigated and cleared. The investigation into the crash by the Delaware State Police is ongoing.
