Middletown High School Student Airlifted After Being Struck By Vehicle

Just before 12:00 on Wednesday morning rescue crews working a crash along Route 299 in Middletown in the area of the hospital were alerted to an accident just blocks away.

As crews were clearing the first accident they rushed to Route 299 in front of the high school for reports of a pedestrian struck. As crews arrived on scene they found a seventeen-year-old male that had been stuck by a vehicle that was driving at approximately 35-MPH, according to reports.

Crews on scene confirmed that the patient would be transported by air and set up a landing zone for Delaware State Police Aviation’s Trooper 4 on the school grounds.
