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.

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.
