Updated: Police ID Woman Killed in Selbyville Crash

Posted: Updated:

SELBYVILLE, Del.- Delaware State Police have released the name of a woman killed in a Saturday night crash in Selbyville.

Troopers identified the victim as 74-year-old Rosemary A. Amato, of Weston, Ohio. 

Police said the incident occurred shortly before 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, when a 2018 Nissan Altima was traveling southbound on Gum Road and approaching the intersection of Roxanna Road (SR 17), which is controlled by a stop sign for southbound traffic. 

A 2014 Chevrolet Traverse was traveling westbound on Roxanna Road approaching the same intersection. Police said that for unknown reasons, the operator of the Altima entered the intersection directly into the path of the Traverse. As a result, the front of the Traverse impacted the left front of the Altima within the westbound travel lane of Roxanna Road.

Troopers said that Amato, who was driving the Altima, was properly restrained.  She was transported to the Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin, Md., where she ultimately succumbed to her injuries. 

The operator of the Traverse, a 50-year-old man from Middle River, Md., was properly restrained.  He was transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md., and later transferred to Baltimore Shock Trauma with serious injuries.  There were also three passengers in the Traverse, a 53-year-old female, a 36-year-old male and a 36-year-old female. Police said all three passengers were properly restrained and transported to PRMC, where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Roxanna Road was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

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