Ocean City Man Pronounced Dead on Scene Accident

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORD, Del. - Delaware State Police are investigating an accident that took the life of an Ocean City man.

It happened at 4 p.m. Tuesday on Gum Road just east of Pepper Road in Frankford.

Troopers said Alfred Cochran, 75, was driving a 2007 Honda Accord eastbound on Gum Road. Police said the car was speeding as it went into a slight left curve and drove off the south edge of the road. The car struck a culvert pipe causing it to vault into the air, according to police.

Upon landing, the right front of the car hit the ground causing it to flip violently before coming to a rest in a ditch.

Cochran was partially ejected from the car and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the road was closed for two and a half hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
