Pedestrian Airlifted To Christiana Hospital Listed In Serious Condition

Georgetown Police are currently investigating a motor vehicle crash involving a pedestrian that occurred at approximately 8:15 p.m., Friday, January 17, 2020, on Dupont Boulevard in the area of Bramhall Street.

Public Information Officer Detective Joey Melvin said the initial investigation has determined that a 2015 Chevrolet Impala, operated by a 61-year-old Lincoln man, was traveling northbound on Dupont Boulevard in the left lane.

A 58-year-old Georgetown man was attempting to cross Dupont Boulevard from the east to the west on foot when he proceeded directly into the path of the Chevrolet. The front end of the Chevrolet struck the male victim, throwing him to the ground in the left lane of travel where he came to rest. After the collision, the Chevrolet came to a controlled stop and remained at the scene.

The male pedestrian was transported by Delaware State Police Aviation Unit to Christiana Hospital and listed in serious condition.

The driver of the Chevrolet and a passenger were properly restrained, and neither were injured. Neither impairment nor speed is currently deemed as contributing factors on the driver’s behalf at this time, said Melvin.
