ELLENDALE, Del.- Delaware State Police say a truck driver was killed when his vehicle left the road in Ellendale and struck several trees and a utility pole.
It happened shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday on Beach Highway (SR16) west of North Union Church Road. According to police, 37-year-old Kenneth W. Johnson of Bridgeville was operating a Mack rollback truck towing a 30-yard trailer containing scrap metal.
