4 Injured in Hit-and-run Crash Near Dagsboro

Posted:
DAGSBORO, Del.- Delaware State Police say four women were injured near Dagsboro after the vehicle they were riding in was struck by a hit-and-run driver of a stolen car.

Troopers said they responded to the intersection of DuPont Boulevard (US113) and Swamp Road around 10 a.m. Tuesday after receiving calls about a hit-and-run crash that had just occurred. Police said a preliminary investigation revealed that a 2007 Honda Accord operated by Gladys R. Handy, 82 of Ocean City, Md., was traveling northbound on US113 approaching Swamp Road when a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu failed to yield the right of way as it was crossing from west to east on Swamp Road. The two vehicles collided in the intersection of the northbound lanes and the Malibu continued to drive eastbound on Swamp Road approximately two miles before stopping, investigators said. They said that there, the unknown operator abandoned the vehicle and fled in an unknown direction. The Honda Accord came to a stop in the northbound lanes.

Troopers said Handy and her three adult female passengers were all properly restrained and transported to Beebe Medical Center where they were treated for undetermined injuries.

Troopers were assisted by the Selbyville and Dagsboro police departments, along with a state police K9 and aviation, in searching for the driver of the Malibu for approximately an hour and a half without any results. While conducting the crash investigation, dispatchers in the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center (9-1-1) were contacted by a 36-year-old Dagsboro woman reporting that her 2006 Chevrolet Malibu was stolen from her home on Gum Tree Road sometime between 1 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. Tuesday. This information matched the description of the vehicle that was involved in the collision, police said.


According to investigators, the operator of the Malibu was described as a black male, approximately 30-35 years of age, 6-foot-tall, 180 pounds, wearing a white shirt and tan pants.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Trooper First Class S. Devenney at (302) 856-5850, ext. 333, or by utilizing the Delaware State Police Mobile Crime Tip Application available to download at: http://www.delaware.gov/apps/. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
