LEWES, Del.- Delaware State Police have released the name of a man killed Monday after the pickup truck he was driving collided with a car on Coastal Highway in Lewes.

The victim was identified as 40-year-old Thomas C. Frederick, of Lewes. 

According to police, the accident happened shortly after 1 p.m. Monday. Troopers said Frederick was driving northbound on Coastal Highway (SR1) when his pickup truck crossed the grass median and struck the car of a 25-year-old Lewes woman who was driving southbound on the highway.

Police said Frederick was not wearing a seat belt and was transported to Beebe Healthcare where he was pronounced dead.

The woman was transported to the same hospital and was treated for non-life threatening injuries, police said. 

Police said impairment may have been a factor on behalf of Frederick. The DSP Reconstruction Unit is continuing to investigate the crash. 

The two left lanes of SR1 southbound and the far left lane of SR1 northbound were closed for two and a half hours while the crash was investigated and cleared, police said.
