DE Trooper Identified In Pedestrian Death

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police are releasing the name of a trooper who was driving a marked police cruiser when it struck and killed a pedestrian over the weekend.
    
Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Shavack identified the officer Monday as Trooper First Class Brian Crisman. He is a three-year veteran of the police force assigned to Troop 6 at Prices Corner.
    
Police said 49-year-old Robert Smith of Wilmington was struck and killed about 4 a.m. Saturday near Farrand Drive. Investigators believe Smith was trying to cross the westbound lanes of the highway when he was struck.
    
Crisman's name had been withheld until Monday. Police said Saturday that he was not injured.
    
Police said Saturday that alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash on the part of the pedestrian. An investigation continues.
