Reports: Domestic Incident Ends With Pedestrian Struck In Newark, Fleeing Vehicle


Newark – Just after 9:15 last evening rescue crews from Aetna Hose, Hook, and Ladder, New Castle County Paramedics and Trooper 4 (Delaware State Police Aviation) responded to a motor vehicle accident involving a pedestrian in the the 200 block of Margaux Circle.

Upon arrival, ambulance crews from Aetna’s A-10 reported that a subject was down in the roadway. As crews and New Castle County Police responded to the scene they were advised that this was possibly a domestic incident. They were also advised that the vehicle had fled the scene.

After assessing the patient, Aetna’s Deputy 9 immediately advised Trooper 4 to locate an LZ (Landing Zone) and that they would be utilized.

Due to complications with the patient, crews determined that it would be better to transport by ground and Trooper 4 was recalled.

The patient was transported to the hospital with unspecified injuries.

New Castle County Police have not released any details regarding this investigation.

If they release further details we will update this story.
