Pedestrian Struck, Killed in Del.

Posted:

NEW CASTLE, Del.- Delaware State Police say a woman attempting to cross U.S. 13 in New Castle was struck and killed by an SUV on Monday evening.

Troopers said that at around 9:35 p.m., 38-year-old Kimberly Cage, of Delaware City, was attempting to cross the northbound lanes of North DuPont Highway from the center median. Police said Cage entered the left lane of travel, directly into the path of a 2002 Mercedes-Benz M50 SUV operated by 50-year-old Christina Bentil, of Bear.

Cage suffered multiple traumatic injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene, investigators said. Police said Bentil was properly restrained and not injured.

Police said a preliminary investigation has indicated that Cage attempted to cross northbound lanes of US 13 in an eastbound direction from the center median, not within a designated or marked crosswalk.

North DuPont Highway northbound was initially closed and then restricted to one lane of travel for approximately two hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

Troopers continue to investigate this crash and no charges have been filed.
