MARYDEL, Del. - The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit says they are investigating a crash that has left two Marydel men dead on Halltown Road last evening.

According to reports, preliminary investigation has determined that the incident occurred on Saturday, June 7th at approximately 10:12 PM, as a 1999 Ford Escort, operated by Estanislao Lopez-Berduo, 27, of Marydel was traveling westbound on Halltown Road (SR8) west of Enss Road, Marydel. For unknown reasons, Lopez-Berduo's vehicle reportedly crossed over into the eastbound lanes, into the path of an eastbound 2000 Pontiac Sunfire being operated by Zachary Rogers, 18, of Marydel, resulting in a head-on collision.

Police say Lopez-Berduo, the operator and sole occupant of the Ford Escort sustained multiple traumatic injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Preliminary investigation has reportedly determined that alcohol is suspected as a factor on the part of Lopez-Berduo.

Two female passengers in the Sunfire, Avianna Walker-Lane, 17 and Mikeshia Stewart, 19 both of Dover, were transported by Delaware State Police Aviation Helicopter to the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center with non-life threatening injuries.
