One-Vehicle Crash Leaves Del. Man Dead

Posted:
 GLASGOW, Del.- The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a one-vehicle crash that left a 20-year-old man dead in Glasgow Sunday morning.

Delaware State Police say the preliminary investigation determined that the incident occurred early Sunday morning just after 7:00 a.m., as a 2008 Chevrolet Impala, operated by 21-year-old Anthony A. Ennis-Fields, of Newark, DE, was traveling southbound on Route 896 approaching the off ramp to Glasgow Avenue. Troopers say for an unknown reason the Impala went off the roadway and went into the grassy area between Route 896 and Glasgow Avenue, continuing into a heavily wooded area before striking a tree. Troopers say the front-seat passenger of the Impala, 20-year-old Phillip Willie Joe Hackett, of Newark, DE, was trapped inside of the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers say Ennis-Fields was flown to the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center to be treated for serious injuries.

Troopers say both Phillip Hackett and Anthony Ennis-Fields were properly restrained at the time of the crash. Troopers say Route 896 was closed at Glasgow Avenue for approximately one hour as the crash was investigated and cleared.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing to investigate the crash, but they say alcohol is being considered as a factor.
