Joseph A. Marks, of Stevensville, Md., killed; lost control on wet road.
The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal crash Sunday night in Bridgeville.
Around 11 p.m. on Sunday, May 13, a 2011 BMW 328 XI was traveling east on Newton Road, negotiating a moderate right curve as approaching the intersection of Adams Road. A 2007 Pontiac G-6 was westbound on Newton Road, negotiating the same curve. Due to a combination of the road being wet and unsafe speed, the operator of the BMW began to spin and enter into the westbound travel lane. The front of the Pontiac struck the left front and side of the BMW.
The operator of the BMW, identified as 30-year-old Joseph A. Marks, of Stevensville, Md., was pronounced dead at the scene by EMS. It is unknown if he was wearing his seatbelt, and impairment is suspected.
The operator of the Pontiac, an 18-year-old female of Seaford, was not wearing her seatbelt and impairment does not appear to be a factor. She was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where she was treated and released.
The crash remains under investigation.
