GEORGETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a single-car crash in Georgetown that claimed the life of a 16-year-old boy on Wednesday.

Troopers said that at around 3:30 p.m., Logan Taylor Roe, 16, of Millsboro, was operating a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix westbound on Asbury Road, near Racoon Ditch Road, when he failed to negotiate a sharp left curve and went off the north side of the roadway.

According to police, the car continued traveling west before striking a telephone pole with the driver's front side. Authorities said the impact of the crash caused the car to spin counter-clockwise before coming to a stop in a densely wooded area.

Investigators said Roe, who was properly restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene,

Troopers said an 18-year-old female passenger, who was also properly restrained, was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford. She was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released. Police did not release her name.

Asbury Road was closed for approximately three hours as the crash was investigated and cleared. The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit continues to investigate the accident.
