One Killed, Three Injured in Crash Near Frankford

Posted: Updated:
FRANKFORD,  Del. - Delaware State Police say one person is dead and three others injured after a crash in Sussex County.

Investigators say the crash happened around 10:30 a.m. Saturday east of Frankford.

Troopers say 48-year-old Robert K. Hensley 4th, of Milford, was driving a 2001 Mazda Millenia eastbound on Burbage Road. DSP says as Hensley was approaching the intersection of Powell Farm Road, he failed to stop at a stop sign.

Troopers say Hensley then crashed into a 1989 Dodge Caravan, driven by 51-year-old Danny L. Moore of Selbyville.

Moore was traveling northbound on Powell Farm Road approaching Burbage Road and had the right-of-way through the intersection. Investigator say Hensley hit the Caravan on the left side causing both vehicles to veer off the roadway and into a ditch.  The Caravan overturned and came to a stop upside down in the ditch with the front of the Mazda partially underneath the hood of the van.
Troopers said Moore, who was properly restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene from multiple traumatic injuries suffered in the crash.  His 15-year-old son, who was properly restrained in the front passengers seat, was initially transported to Beebe Medical Center before being flown to A.I. DuPont Hospital where he is currently admitted with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said Hensley and a 62-year- old female passenger were both properly restrained and were airlifted to Christiana Medical Center where they were both admitted with non-life-threatening injuries.
The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident and charges may be forthcoming.  It is unknown whether alcohol was a factor. 

Burbage Road between Blackwater Road and Roxana Road as well as Powell Farm Road between Blackwater Road and Omar Road was closed for approximately five hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.

Police noted that there is no known relationship between Danny Moore and Charles Moore, who died Friday evening north of Milton.
