Updated: Man, 20, Killed in Millsboro Crash

Posted: Updated:

MILLSBORO, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a Thursday morning two-vehicle crash in Millsboro that claimed the life of a 20-year-old man.

Troopers said the incident occurred at around 4:40 a.m., as Corey A. Burton, 20, of Millsboro, was operating a 2004 Ford Mustang westbound on John J. Williams Highway (SR24), in the area of Rock Pile Way. Police said that meanwhile, Justin B. Baldwin, 35 of Salisbury, Md., was operating a 2013 Isuzu six-wheel box truck eastbound in the same vicinity. 

Investigators said that for reasons still unknown, the Mustang crossed the center line and entered the opposing travel lane directly in front of the box truck. Police said Baldwin swerved right in an attempt to avoid the Mustang, but the two vehicles struck nearly head-on in the eastbound travel lane.  After the impact, the Mustang rotated clockwise and came to rest on the westbound shoulder, according to police. They said  The Isuzu box truck continued in an easterly direction and came to a stop partially in the grass off the eastbound shoulder. 

Burton was not properly restrained and was partially ejected, according to police. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Baldwin was properly restrained and was uninjured in the crash, investigators said. 

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident. However, police said alcohol and drugs may have been a contributing factor on behalf of Burton. 

SR24 was closed between Maryland Camp and William Street roads for approximately four hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
