Presented by Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Gary Fournier

Wyoming, DE – The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a crash that occurred in the beginning of April resulting in a fatality.

The incident occurred around 9:45 a.m. Monday April 2, 2017 as Robert Machalski Jr., 51 of Hartly, was operating a 2006 Dodge Caravan westbound on Westville Road, just east of Almshouse Road approaching a right curve.  The Caravan failed to negotiate the curve, traveling off the south side of the roadway where it struck a ditch and overturned before coming to a stop.

Robert Machalski was properly restrained and transported to Christiana Medical Center where he was admitted in critical condition until he died on Tuesday April 18, 2017.

Speed may have been a factor in this case although there is no evidence of alcohol or drugs being contributing factors.
