MILLSBORO, Del.- A section of Route 24 near Millsboro was closed down following a crash Monday morning.

The Indian River Volunteer Fire Company said it happened just before 5:30 a.m. in front of Giant Foods.

Fire officials said a gold, 4-door sedan was traveling westbound on Route 24 when it left the road for unknown reasons and crashed into a utility pole. Firefighters said the vehicle then continued westbound, hit several mailbox posts and stopped after crashing into a row of bushes.

According to fire officials, a utility pole was severed, which caused an electrical hazard across Route 24.

Fire officials said an adult occupant with two children left the scene of the crash and were later tracked to a nearby home off of Route 24.

Delaware State Fire Police coordinated a detour while crews worked to clear the road.

Fire officials said Delaware State Police is investigating the accident.
