One Person Dead, One Injured in Georgetown Crash

Posted: Updated:
GEORGETOWN, Del.- The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a single vehicle crash that police say killed the driver and severely injured the passenger.
 
Police say the incident happened around 12:55 a.m. Thursday morning as Brandon M. Robertson, 21 of Milton, was operating a 1989 GMC Sierra northbound on Sand Hill Road, just north of Rudd Road.  Investigators say as the truck started to take a left curve, the driver lost control and drove off the east side of the road where it flipped onto its passenger's side and hit a utility pole with the windshield. Police say the force of the impact severed the pole and rotated the truck in a clockwise manner before it came to a stop at the base of the pole.
 
Robertson, who was properly restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. 

Authorities say a passenger, Anthony B. Huling, 18 of Georgetown, was properly restrained and was extricated from the truck prior to being flown by State Police Aviation to Christiana Medical Center where he is currently listed in critical condition.
 
Police say the Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident. 

Emergency Responders have cleared the scene on Sand Hill Road, but it still remains closed due to utility crews working to repair the damaged pole, according to police.
