Delaware State Police are still investigating a multi-fatal crash that killed them and shut down part of Route 1 traffic in New Castle County on July 6.
The accident happened on Route 1 northbound in the area of Pine Tree Road in Townsend around 3:50 p.m. And officials say there were two survivors from the crash, including the wife of one of the deceased victims.
Master Coporal Melissa Jaffe said, “It’s certainly heartbreaking. I feel so bad for this family. I cannot imagine what they’re going through.”
Police say a work-style pickup truck was headed southbound on Pine Tree Road when it crossed over the center median into northbound traffic. The truck hit a passenger vehicle that was traveling northbound on Route 1. The passenger car came to a rest at the center median as the truck continued southbound on the northbound lanes when a minivan struck it.
The pickup truck had two occupants who were transferred to a local area hospital for non-life threatening injuries, police say. The passenger car had one occupant who was transported to a local area hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Route 1 is now reopened, according to police.
The crash remains under investigation.
A GoFundMe that has been set up to support the sole survivor, Mary Rose, was created Saturday and has already exceeded it’s goal of $10,000.
