Single Car Crash In Delmar Kills Toddler

Posted: Updated:

DELMAR, Del. - Authorities believe alcohol to be involved, in a single vehicle crash, that killed a toddler. The Delaware State Police say that on Tuesday afternoon around 2:40 PM, Danielle Bobak, 46, of Georgetown, was driving her Subaru on Whitesville Road.

Police say that the wheels on the passenger side, drifted off the road, causing Bobak to over correct, and spin out. While spinning, the car hit a tree, and rolled onto the passenger's side. Bobak's nephew, who was in a car seat in the back, was ejected from the vehicle when it rolled. Police say that child safety seat was not properly installed.

The toddler was flown to John Hopkins, where he was later pronounced dead. Bobak, who was wearing her seat belt, is currently listed in serious condition at PRMC. The crash is still under investigation, but officials say that alcohol looks to be a factor.

Whitesville Road was closed for three and a half hours during the investigation and while the scene was cleared.

The Delaware State Police and Office of Highway Safety want to remind the public to have your car seats checked. They say that three out of four car seats aren't installed correctly. Free check stations are offered throughout Delaware and are listed online or by contacting the Office of Highway Safety at (302)744-2740.
