GREENWOOD, Del.- Delaware State Police have released the names of two people who died in a Friday night crash northwest of Greenwood.

Police said the incident occurred shortly after 9 p.m. as Christopher J. Bramble, 41, of Georgetown, was operating a Ford F-150 pickup truck eastbound on Andrewsville Road just east of Greenwood Road. Troopers said that for unknown reasons, the pickup's right side tires went off the south edge of the roadway. This caused the rear of the vehicle to rotate in a counter-clockwise direction before crossing the westbound lane and traveling off the north side of the roadway.

Police said that as the truck traveled off the roadway, it struck a mailbox with its right side. The pickup’s right side tires then gouged into the grass and overturned several times through the front yard of a home. Troopers said this ejected Bramble and Ciera B. Smoot, 21, of Greenwood, onto the ground. The pickup came to stop in a cornfield facing upright in a northerly direction. All three occupants were not properly restrained.

Bramble was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Bayhealth

Smoot, who was in the right side passenger's seat, was transported by EMS to MMH and later transferred to Christiana Medical Center where she was admitted in critical condition. She died as a result of her injuries on Saturday Sept. 30.

A 45-year-old Harrington man, seated in the back row middle seat, was taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital by EMS where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident. Alcohol and speed may have been contributing factors in the case, police said.

Andrewville Road at Greenwood Road was closed for approximately four and a half hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
