Driver Charged in Fatal Smyrna Crash

Posted:

SMYRNA, Del. (AP/WBOC) - Delaware State Police say a driver whose passenger died in a two-vehicle crash in Smyrna has been charged in the accident.

Sixty-three-year-old Goldwire Jackson of Wilmington surrendered to troopers on Tuesday. He is charged with operation of a vehicle causing death of another person and was released on $1,000 unsecured bond.

Police say 37-year-old Michael G. Stigler of New Castle was a passenger in Jackson's panel truck on Oct. 8 when Jackson hit the rear of a camper parked on State Route 1 in Smyrna.

Troopers say the truck fell onto the driver's side and traveled onto a grassy area.

Jackson, who investigators said was not properly restrained, was transported to Christiana Hospital by DSP helicopter, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, and released.

Stigler, who police said was wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene.
