Troopers Investigating Fatal Crash – Newark

Capture

Newark (19702)- The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a fatal crash that occurred last evening in the Newark area.

The incident occurred at approximately 10:34 p.m., on Saturday, August 18, 2018, when a 2013 Toyota Camry was traveling northbound on Salem Church Road, north of Deasy Drive, and a 2018 Ford F-150 was traveling southbound on Salem Church Road.

The operator of the Ford F-150, a 39-year-old man from Bear, attempted to pass a vehicle that was directly in front of him.  The area in which he was attempting to pass the vehicle was a no passing zone, and marked with two solid yellow lines.  The F-150 crossed over the center lines and into oncoming traffic, striking the Camry head-on.

The impact displaced the Camry into a ditch and it overturned on the driver’s side trapping two of the three occupants.  The driver, a 31-year-old Newark man, was properly restrained, and transported to the Christiana Hospital in serious condition.  His two passengers, his father 57-years old and his mother 52-years old were seated in the back seat, unrestrained.  Both were transported to the Christiana Hospital, where the 57-year-old male was pronounced deceased, and the 52-year-old female was in critical condition.  Identification is pending next of kin notification.

The operator of the F-150 was properly restrained and transported to the Christiana Hospital with non-life threating injuries. In addition to disregarding the traffic control device (lane markings), it is suspected that alcohol may also be a contributing factor.

Salem Church Road in the vicinity of Deasy Drive was closed for approximately 3 hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

This crash continues to remain under investigation by the Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit.

Camden DE Basic SRO Course Class Photo

The Delaware State Police hosted a 5-day, “Basic School Resource Officer Training” course at Troop 3, Camden on August 13-17, 2018. This course was created and maintained by the “National Association of School Resource Officers” (NASRO).

The NASRO Basic School Resource Officer Course is a forty-hour block of instruction designed for law enforcement officers and school safety professionals working in an educational environment and with school administrators. The course provides tools for officers to build positive relationships with both students and staff.

The course emphasizes three main areas of instructions:

  • Function of Law Enforcement – Instruction on the differences between law enforcement when conducted inside a school environment including understanding the teen brain and de-escalation techniques.
  • Mentoring Students – Instruction designed to provide tools to be a positive role model for youth, including informal counseling techniques.
  • Guest Speaking – Instruction on a variety of instructional techniques as well as classroom management tools to provide law-related education to students.

One of the instructors included, Detective Joey Melvin a School Resource Officer/Public Information Officer with the Georgetown Police Department, stated “It is impressive and encouraging to instruct a class of officers who are dedicated to the mission of creating safe learning environments. By participating in NASRO’s Basic School Resource Officer course, these officers are clearly demonstrating the vigilant culture of law enforcement assigned within Delaware schools.” 

Those in attendance gained a solid working knowledge of the School Resource Officer concept and how to establish a lasting partnership with their schools:

  • 12 Delaware State Troopers
  • 12 Capital School District Constables
  • 1 Selbyville Police Officer
  • 2 Seaford Police Officers
  • 1 DNREC Officer
  • 1 Polytech School District Constable
  • 2 Caroline County Sheriffs
  • 2 Chesapeake College Public Safety Officers
  • 2 Calvert County Sheriffs
  • 2 Talbot County Sheriffs
  • 1 Somerset County Sheriff
  • 1 West Lampeter Township(PA) Police Officer
  • 1 KST Security Consultant

The host of this course, Sergeant Mark A. Gaglione of the Delaware State Police Troop 3 Youth Aid Division, stated, “All law enforcement has recently been trained and continue to retrain on active shooters and school safety.  This course teaches that aspect but also how to prevent these incidents by becoming integrated into the school and community.  By being ever vigilant and present at schools, we can not only deter violence but be a partner with the community and schools to identify individuals in need of assistance and get them the help they need.  Additionally, by interacting with students of all different cultures, backgrounds, and other demographics we can better serve them and hopefully foster a more positive relationship between the community and the police that serve them.”
