Delaware State Police are investigating a hit-and-run crash that claimed the life of one man early this morning.

Officials said on Friday morning, at approximately 2:18 a.m., a silver car was driving northbound on Harbeson Road north of Lewes-Georgetown Highway. At the same time, for reasons under investigation, a pedestrian was in the northbound lane of Harbeson Road. The pedestrian was hit by the silver car. A short time later, a smaller white SUV also driving northbound, hit the pedestrian. Both vehicles left the scene.

The victim, a 28-year-old man from Seaford, was taken to a nearby hospital where he died. His name is being withheld until his family has been notified.

Harbeson Road was closed for approximately 4 hours while investigators examined the scene and cleared the roadway.
