Woman Struck and Killed by Car in Georgetown

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police say a woman died after being struck by a car in Georgetown on Thursday night. 

Troopers said the incident happened shortly after 9 p.m., when a 2002 Volkswagen Bug was traveling southbound on Dupont Boulevard (U.S. 113) in the left lane and approaching Ennis Street. 

According to police, a 28-year-old Georgetown woman was walking in a westerly direction through the grass median of Dupont Boulevard and attempting to cross the southbound travel lanes. Police said that is when she entered the roadway directly into the path of the Volkswagen and was struck.  The driver of the Volkswagen was unable to avoid the collision, investigators said. 

Police said the victim was not in a crosswalk, wearing dark clothing, and not carrying a light. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.  Her name is being withheld at this time pending the notification of next of kin.

Police said the driver of the Volkswagen, a 21-year-old woman from Arnold, Md., remained on scene, was properly restrained, and did not sustain injury.

The southbound lanes of Dupont Boulevard were closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

The crash continues to remain under investigation by the DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit.
