LITTLE CREEK, Del. – A fatal car crash killed one person and sent three others to the hospital.

It happened Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. on Bayside Drive, south of South Little Creek Road.

Delaware State Police said Zachary Bowman, 20, Odessa, was driving a 1999 Dodge Neon southbound on Bayside Drive. Police said he was speeding and lost control of the car as he went into a right curve. The car started to slide in a counter-clockwise manner before exiting the west side of the road.

The Neon hit a ditch and overturned multiple times, ejecting all four passengers, according to police.

Brandon Maugle, 20, of Townsend, who was sitting in the left rear passenger seat was taken to Kent General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
