DELMAR, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Delaware State Police say one person died after a car collided with a freight train outside Delmar on Friday morning.
 
The incident occurred shortly before 9 a.m. on Bacons Road between Powell Farm Lane and Country Walk.
 
Troopers said a car was traveling eastbound on Bacons Road when a train was traveling southbound on the railroad tracks.  The vehicle then crossed onto the railroad tracks and was subsequently struck by the train, police said. 
 
The driver of the car, whose name has not yet been released, was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS. 
 

The National Transportation Safety Board has been notified of the crash and officials from the Delmarva Central Railroad are on scene.  

Police said the train was not carrying any type of hazardous material and there is no threat to the surrounding Delmar community. Bacons Road between Powell Farm Lane and Country Walk remained closed late Friday morning. 

This wreck comes days after a pedestrian was struck and killed by a train in Georgetown.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to contact Master Cpl. K. Argo of the Troop 7 Collision Reconstruction Unit at 302-644-5020.
