Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del - Delaware State Police are investigating a deadly car crash that happened east of Seaford.

Police said that at around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, 31-year-old Elliud Vasquez, of Bridgeville, was driving a 2003 Hyundai sedan northbound on King Road just north of Dove Road at a high speed.

Troopers said that while attempting to turn on a moderate right curve on a rain soaked roadway, Vasquez lost control, which caused the car to rotate in a clockwise direction off the east side of the roadway.  The front of the Hyundai then struck a large tree.  Police said crash caused a violent rotation that partially ejected Vasquez, while simultaneously striking a second tree before coming to a stop. 

According to police, alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

King Road was closed for approximately four hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
