2 Pedestrians Struck, Killed In Delaware

FENWICK ISLAND, Del. (AP) — The Delaware State Police says two pedestrians are dead after a car hit them on Fenwick Island.

Officials say the crash happened Friday at just after 11 p.m. as the two men attempted to cross Lighthouse Road east of Dukes Road. Troopers say the driver of a Jeep Wrangler hit the men.

Delaware State Police spokesman Cpl. John Day said Saturday it wasn’t clear if the two men were in a crosswalk or if they knew each other.

The men were identified as 64-year-old Robert J. Rust Jr. of Lutherville, Md., and 45-year-old Grant D. Kinkade Sr. of Westminster, Md. Kinkade died at the scene. Rust was taken by helicopter to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The driver of the vehicle and his two passengers were uninjured.
