Updated: Police ID Woman Killed in Millville Crash

Posted: Updated:

MILLVILLE, Del.- Delaware State Police have released the name of a Pennsylvania woman killed in a Wednesday night crash in Millville.

Police identified the victim as 81-year-old Sallie Anne Ziff, of New Hope, Pa.

According to police, just after 8 p.m. Wednesday, a Toyota Corolla was headed northbound on Roxana Road (SR-17) just north of Powell Farm Road. Troopers said the car was stopped in the travel lane with the left turn signal activated waiting to turn left into a commercial business.

Police said a GMC Acadia was heading southbound on the same road just near the Corolla. The drive of the Corolla allegedly turned left, into the path of the Acadia, according to police. As a result, the Acadia struck the right side of the Corolla within the southbound lane.

Everyone in the Corolla was properly restrained, according to police. The driver of the Corolla, a 57-year-old man of New Hope, Pa., and the front seat passenger, a 59-year-old woman of Frankford, Del., were not injured during the collision. A back seat passenger of the Corolla, a 78-year-old of Philadelphia, sustained serious injuries. She was taken to Beebe Medical Center and later transferred to Christina Hospital. A second back seat passenger, identified as Ziff, was taken to Beebe Medical Center for serious injuries. She was later pronounced dead.

The driver of the Acadia, a 28-year-old from Selbyville, Del., was properly restrained and not injured in the crash, according to police. A front seat passenger and two children in the rear seat were also in the car, properly restrained, and remained uninjured from the collision.

Roxana Road was closed down for about an hour and a half during the investigation, according to State Troopers.

The crash remains under investigation by the DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit.
