Updated: Police ID Woman Killed in Seaford Crash

Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police have released the name of a woman killed in a three-vehicle crash in Seaford that left three other people injured.

Police identified the woman as 48-year-old Hope A. Jackson, of Seaford. 

Troopers said the incident happened at around 3:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30, when a 2017 Fiat Coupe was traveling eastbound on County Seat Highway (US 9) and stopped at the intersection of Asbury Road, intending to turn left. Police said a 2014 Ford Mustang was traveling eastbound on County Seat Highway and approaching the Fiat. At the same time a 2009 Ford Econoline van was traveling westbound on County Seat Highway and approaching the intersection of Asbury Road.

Police said that for unknown reasons, the operator of the Mustang failed to perceive that the Fiat was stopped and rear-ended it. Police said this caused the Fiat to rotate counterclockwise into the westbound lane and head directly into the path of the van. The van then struck the rear of the Fiat, causing it to overturn onto its roof.

Troopers said Hope Jackson, who was driving the Fiat, was properly restrained and pronounced deceased at the scene. 

Police said the driver of the Mustang, a 36-year-old Georgetown man, was properly restrained.  He was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and treated and released.

Police said the driver of the van, a 43-year-old man from Salisbury, Md., was properly restrained.  He was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and treated and released.  A passenger in the van was not properly restrained and was also transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police. 

County Seat Highway in the area of Asbury Road was closed for approximately five-and-a-half hours while the crash was investigated.

The crash continues to remain under investigation by the Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit.
