SEAFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating an early Wednesday crash near Seaford that claimed the life of one man and left another injured.
Investigators said the incident occurred shortly after 2 a.m., as 23-year-old James Serge of Seaford was driving a Suzuki Verona southbound on Hastings Farm Road just north of Old Furnace Road and approaching a small curve in the road. Police said Serge later reported to troopers that two deer were standing in the roadway directly in his path so he applied his brakes and swerved to the left to avoid hitting them.
According to police, the vehicle then began to rotate in a counter-clockwise manner before it left the east side of the wet roadway and struck a decorative brick driveway pillar with its front bumper. Troopers said the car then struck a large brick abutment and continued its rotation, resulting in Serge being ejected from the vehicle. The Suzuki Verona then continued down an embankment and came to a stop after it struck a large tree with the left fender, police said.
Authorities said Serge, who was not properly restrained, was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where he is listed in stable condition.
Police said 28-year-old Gamson Milce of Bridgeville, who was an unrestrained passenger in the car, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not ejected from the vehicle, according to investigators.
The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into the crash. Hastings Farm Road in the area of Old Furnace Road was closed for approximately three and a half hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
