LEWES, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a single-vehicle crash near Lewes that claimed the life of a Rehoboth Beach man early Monday.

Troopers said the incident occurred at approximately 12:26 a.m., as 46-year-old Richard O. Magee Jr. was driving a 1998 Jeep Wrangler westbound on John J. Williams Highway (SR 24) just east of Camp Arrowhead Road and approaching a slight left curve. 

According to police, Magee failed to negotiate the curve and drove off the north side of the roadway where the Jeep struck a utility pole with the right front side.  The vehicle then began rotating in a clockwise manner and continued in a westerly direction before striking another utility pole and coming to a stop. Police said Magee, who was not properly restrained, was partially ejected from the Jeep and pronounced dead at the scene.
 
John J. Williams Highway in the area of Camp Arrowhead Road was closed for approximately four hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
