A Townsend man died in a single vehicle crash west of Clayton Thursday night.
The accident occurred at about 7:15 p.m. as Robert R. Pizarro, 27, of Townsend, was operating a 2007 Saturn Aura south on Daisey Road north of Millington Road, according to Delaware State Police. The Saturn traveled off the west side of the road and struck a ditch. The car continued in a southwestern direction into a wooded area where it struck numerous trees before stopping.
Pizarro, who was not properly restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Police in the Collision Reconstruction Unit are continuing their investigation into this incident.
Daisey Road north of Millington Road was closed for about two hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
