Dover, Del.- The Dover Police Department is investigating and searching for a second driver involved in a fatal motor vehicle collision that took place Friday night.

Police say 21-year-old Brandon Pleines, of Dover, was traveling down Route 8 and Independence Boulevard when the collision occurred.

Witnesses say an blue or black sedan attempted to merge into the right lane and collided with Pleines' Toyota Rav-4. 

Officers say the initial collision caused the Rav-4 to roll over several times hitting a light pole and mailbox.

Pleins succumbed to his injuries and his passenger suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Police say that the suspect, described as a black male, turned off his headlights and fled the area. 

Dover Police are still investigating and urge anyone with information to call the Dover Police Department. A cash reward up to $1,000 dollars is possible for information leading to an arrest, according to police.
