Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del. – Delaware State Police are investigating a late morning crash that claimed the life of a Millsboro woman in Sussex County.

Troopers said the incident occurred around 11:04 a.m. today, as 80-year-old Charles J. Herrmann was driving a Kia Sedona eastbound on Governor Stockley Road approaching East Piney Grove Road. They said 42-year-old Theodore C. McNamara was driving a Chevy Silverado westbound on the road when Herrmann began turning left onto East Piney Grove Road, turning into the path of the Silverado. The front right corner of the Sedona was struck by the front of the pickup truck within the westbound lane before both vehicles came to a stop at the intersection.

According to police, Herrmann was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, where he was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

Troopers said 83-year-old Virginia L. Straut was in the passenger seat of the Sedona at the time of the crash. Police said she was airlifted by State Police Aviation to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Police said McNamara, who was driving the Silverado, was not injured in the collision.

Police said they do not believe alcohol or speed were factors in the collision. Troopers also said everyone involved was wearing a seat belt. The investigation into this incident is on-going. Traffic in the area was impacted for approximately two hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
