Girl, 10, Killed in Ellendale Area Crash

Posted: Updated:

ELLENDALE, Del.- Delaware State Police say a 10-year-old girl was killed after older brother lost control of the car they were in, and it slammed into a cluster of pine trees north of Ellendale.

Troopers said that at around 3:45 p.m., Wednesday, 20-year-old Alexander R. Jackson of Rehoboth Beach was driving a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica southbound on North Old State Road just south of Fleatown Road at a high rate of speed. According to police, Jackson lost control of the car, causing it to enter the opposing travel lane. Police said Jackson swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle, which caused the Pacifica to spin off the west side of the road where it crashed into a ditch and went airborne while continue to rotate.

Troopers said the car landed in a densely wooded area with several pine trees coming down on the roof. According to police, 10-year-old Christina Stevens, also of Rehoboth Beach, was riding in the right rear passenger's seat and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jackson was transported from the scene by EMS to Milford Memorial Hospital where he is currently in stable condition.

A 14-year-old boy was airlifted by Delaware State Police Aviation to Christiana Medical Center and is currently in stable condition.

A 6-year-old girl was transported to Milford Memorial Hospital by EMS and was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said all three passengers are siblings of Alexander Jackson.

North Old State Road between Fleatown Road and Beach Highway was closed for approximately four hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
