Posted: Updated:

TOWNSEND, Del. - Police say a Dover man died Tuesday night in a crash in New Castle County.

According to the Delaware State Police, 27-year-old Michael McGirr was driving southbound on US13 (DuPont Parkway) just south of Blackbird Forest Road in Townsend around 10:30 p.m. when for an unknown reason his car left the roadway and started to spin, before hitting a tree.

Police say McGirr was properly restrained but was pronounced dead at the scene. They say it is unknown at this time whether alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash, but excessive speed does appear to have been a factor. State police are continuing the investigation.
