LONG NECK, Del. - Troopers are investigating a single-vehicle crash that left one man dead.
 
It happend just after 11 p.m. Saturday night, as 42-year-old Jeffrey Bell Jr. was driving eastbound on Long Neck Road approaching Pot-Nets Road.

Police say the car began to rotate before striking a fence post with the right rear.  The car then quickly began rotating in the opposite direction before it struck a large tree on the driver's side where it came to a sudden stop.
 
Police say Bell, who was not properly restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
Jaime Taylor, 37 of Millsboro, was a passenger in the car. Police say Taylor was properly restrained and was transported by EMS to Beebe Healthcare where she was admitted in critical condition.
 
The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident and alcohol involvement is unknown.  Long Neck Road at Pot-Nets Road was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

    Phillips Packing House Named One of Six in Maryland to "Fix"

    Conservationists call it a "threatened historic place." The Phillips Packing House in Cambridge was built in the 1920s. At its peak, nearly 10,000 employees packed vegetables and shucked oysters inside its factory. But after closing in the 60's, the building and its two, towering smokestacks have sat untouched. But now, a new initiative aims to restore the Phillips Packing House as soon as this year.
