Del. Woman Charged With DUI, Vehicular Homicide in Fatal Crash

Posted:

DELMAR, Del.- Delaware State Police have charged a woman with driving under the influence of alcohol and first-degree vehicular homicide after a Delmar car crash that killed her 2-year-old nephew.

Forty-six-year-old Danielle M. Bobak of Georgetown has also been charged with a child restraint under 8-year-old violation and driving a vehicle at an unreasonable speed in the Nov. 13 crash. She is being held in the Sussex Correctional Institution on a $20,502 secured bond.

Troopers said Bobak lost control of her 2007 Subaru Legacy in a curve on Whitesville Road (SR30), just west of Whaley's Road, east of Delmar. The car struck a tree and rolled onto its passenger side before coming to a stop.

Authorities said Bobak's nephew, Lleyton Slate, of Delmar, Del., was partially ejected from car after it rolled because his child car seat was not properly secured. He was transported by EMS to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury before being flown to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, where he was pronounced dead.
