Twenty-Three-Year-Old NJ Man Killed In Accident Sunday

Middletown, DE- Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal single-vehicle motor vehicle collision that occurred Sunday.

Officials said on May 2, 2021, at approximately 11:14 a.m., a 2006 Toyota Camry operated by a 23-year-old Hillsborough, New Jersey man, was traveling northbound on US-301 in the left-thru lane approaching the Jamison Corner overpass. For unknown reasons, the Camry drifted partially into the center median, then returned to the northbound lanes and traveled into a straight path towards the guardrail on the east edge of the roadway. The front of the vehicle struck the end of the guardrail, exited the road, and traveled down an embankment before overturning and landing on its roof. The Camry traveled a short distance on its roof before it came to rest.

The 23-year-old operator was pronounced deceased at the scene. Identification is pending notification to next of kin.

Northbound US-301 north of Jamison Corner Road was closed for approximately 3 hours due to the initial crash investigation.
