Pennsylvania Man Killed In Middletown Crash Monday

The Delaware State Police are investigating a single-vehicle crash that occurred Monday night in Middletown that left one man dead.

Officials said on March 11, 2024, at approximately 9:05 p.m., a maroon 2008 Saturn Vue was traveling eastbound on Boyds Corner Road, east of Ratledge Road in Middletown.

For reasons under investigation, the Saturn failed to negotiate a right curve and continued traveling in an easterly direction as it crossed the westbound lane and shoulder of Boyds Corner Road. The Saturn continued east as it exited the roadway, where it struck a utility pole’s support guy wire, and then the corner of an unoccupied residence. The Saturn ultimately came to rest after striking the residence’s large raised concrete porch.

The driver, a 66-year-old man from Lebanon, Pennsylvania, was pronounced dead at the scene. His name is being withheld until his family and relatives are notified.

Boyds Corner Road was closed for approximately 1 hour and the shoulder was closed for approximately 3 hours while the investigators examined the scene and cleared the roadway.
