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.
