UPDATE: Police Investigate Fatal Pedestrian Crash In Milford

Posted: Updated:

MILFORD, Del. - The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) says they are currently investigating a serious pedestrian crash that occurred just after midnight.

According to reports, detectives assigned to CRU were requested by the Milford Police Department to assist in the investigation after a 2013 Nissan Altima being operated by Rossini Yen, 30 of Astoria, NY was traveling southbound in the left lane of North DuPont Boulevard (US113) in front of the McDonalds.  At the same time, George F. Henderson, 60 of Milford, was reportedly attempting to cross the highway when he was struck by the front left corner of the car and thrown onto the east side of the roadway.

Police say George Henderson was transported by EMS to Milford Memorial Hospital where he was admitted in critical condition.

Rossini Yen, who was properly restrained, was reportedly not injured in the crash.

Police say the Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident.  Police say alcohol, and a combination of dark clothing and not crossing in a designated crosswalk, may have been contributing factors on behalf of the pedestrian.  Southbound US113 in the area of the collision was reportedly closed for approximately two and a half hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.

Troopers are reminding pedestrians to use caution and safety when walking on or near roadways. If you must cross a roadway utilize appropriate cross walks and make sure to look left, then right, then left again before proceeding. When walking near a roadway, police are asking you to always make yourself visible to drivers by wearing bright/light colored clothing and reflective materials. Pedestrians that are walking at night must carry a flashlight for added safety.
