GREENWOOD, Del.– Delaware State Police are investigating a crash that killed two people early Saturday morning.
 
Police say it happened around 5:20 a.m. Saturday in Greenwood. According to police, 21-year-old Wayne Foster, of Milford, was driving northbound on Shawnee Road, approaching a moderate right curve just south of Memory Road.  

Troopers say for unknown reasons, the car went off the road and began to rotate. Police say the car then hit a tree and continued to spin, causing Foster to be ejected from the car.

Police say both Foster and a 19-year-old James Powell Jr.,  who were not properly restrained,  were pronounced dead at the scene. Another 21-year-old Milford man, who was not properly restrained in the front passenger’s seat, was taken to Bayhealth Milford Memorial Hospital where he was admitted with serious injuries.
 
The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident.  Alcohol may have been a contributing factor in this collision.  SR36 between the north end and south end of Memory Road was closed for approximately three and a half hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
