MILLSBORO, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a single-car crash in Sussex County that claimed the life of a 32-year-old Millsboro man.
 
According to police, the incident occurred shortly after 5 a.m. Monday, as Tyrone W. Coleman was driving his 1994 Cadillac Deville traveling southbound on Hollyville Road, approximately .2 miles north of Harmony Cemetery Road in Millsboro. 
 
Troopers said that for unknown reasons, Coleman failed to negotiate a curve, causing the right side tires of the Cadillac to exit the asphalt. According to police, the Cadillac then traveled on the grassy roadside before the right side of the car then struck two mailboxes and a trash can. The car then spun sideways in a counterclockwise direction, investigators said. Police said the Cadillac continued sliding sideways back across both travel lanes before exiting the north side of roadway, where it struck several trees and overturned.  Coleman, who troopers said was not properly restrained, was ejected from the car.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.  
 
The roadway was closed for approximately two and a half hours as the crash was investigated and cleared. 
 
The investigation into this crash is continuing and anyone with information about this incident, is asked to contact Sgt.  Mendez at (302) 644-5020, ext. 119 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.  Information may also be provided via www.tipsubmit.com. Send an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
