Pedestrian Struck By Truck Flown To Christiana Hospital

Lewes- The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a serious crash involving a pedestrian that occurred Saturday evening, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said the incident occurred on November 2, 2019, at approximately 9:06 p.m., when a 2002 Dodge Ram 4×4 pick-up truck was traveling southbound on Camp Arrowhead Road just north of Waterview Road. The pick-up truck had just exited a sharp right curve in a heavily wooded area. Upon exiting the curve a pedestrian appeared on the right edge of the roadway and either stumbled or fell into the right side of the truck striking the right side mirror, according to Jaffe.

The operator of the pick-up truck, a 22-year-old male from Lewes, DE was properly restrained and not injured.

The pedestrian, a 65-year-old male from Lewes, DE was flown to the Christiana Hospital where he was admitted with non-life-threatening injuries.

Camp Arrowhead Road in the area of Waterview Road was closed for approximately 3 hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

The crash continues to remain under investigation by the Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit.
