Presented by Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier

Harrington – The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a serious two vehicle crash that occurred yesterday afternoon west of Harrington.

The incident occurred around 4:35 p.m. Tuesday August 30, 2016 as Adam L. Fox, 53 of Frederica, was operating a 2014 Volkswagen Passat southbound on Fox Hunters Road and was stopped at the stop sign at the intersection with Whiteleysburg Road.  Brian J. Ennis, 23 of Lincoln, was operating a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe eastbound on Whiteleysburg Road approaching the intersection with Fox Hunters Road when the Passat pulled into the intersection.  The Tahoe struck the front end of the Passat and began to rotate in a counter-clockwise manner before traveling off the south side of the road where the rear of the Tahoe struck a utility pole.  The SUV then overturned, ejecting Ennis from the vehicle.  The Passat rotated in a counter-clockwise manner and came to a stop in the roadway.

Brian Ennis, who was not properly restrained, was removed from the scene by Delaware State Police Aviation and transported to Christiana Medical Center where he was admitted in critical condition.

Adam Fox was properly restrained and sustained non-life-threatening injuries.  He was treated on the scene by EMS.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident. No charges have been filed at this time.  Whiteleysburg Road at Fox Hunters Road was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
