The Delaware State Police were investigating reports of a pedestrian accident in Delaware City that occurred Sunday, June 19.
According to our sources, on June 19th, 2022, a white Chevy Cruze was traveling north on South Dupont Highway near Mid-County Drive in the morning. A 37-year-old female pedestrian from Philadelphia, PA attempted to cross South Dupont Highway, going from west to east, when she was hit by the Chevy Cruze.
The driver of the Chevy Cruze was a 24-year-old woman accompanied by another passenger, also 24. Neither of the two women in the Cruze reported any injuries at the scene.
The pedestrian unfortunately suffered significant injuries and was promptly taken to a nearby hospital, where she later passed away.
