UPDATE: State Police Investigating Fatal Pedestrian Accident in Laurel

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL, Del. - The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a fatal pedestrian accident that happened Tuesday afternoon.

Troopers say 19-year-old Robert Moore was driving a GMC Sierra pickup truck southbound in the right lane of U.S. 13 just before 5 p.m. when he struck 82-year-old Southey White as he walked across the road.

Police say the man, whose identity is being withheld until his next of kin can be notified, was walking westbound from the center median, across the southbound lanes, when the front left side of the truck hit him and threw him to the ground.

The White was taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Moore, who was properly restrained, was also taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

U.S. 13 southbound in the area of Boyce Road was closed for approximately two and a half hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing to investigate the incident.
