Delaware State Police Investigate Fatal Motor Vehicle Collision – Dover – Delaware State Police
Dover- Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal motor vehicle collision on Sunday morning on Pearson’s Corner Road, north of Halltown Road.
On Sunday, September 26, 2021, at approximately 3:45 a.m., a 2003 Chevrolet Trail Balzer was traveling southbound on Pearson’s Corner Road, north of Halltown Road (Route 8). The Chevrolet was traveling at high speed and failed to maintain its lane. The Chevrolet exited the roadway and then returned to it where it lost control and began to turn counterclockwise. The Chevrolet rolled off the road a second time, still heading southeast, until its front passenger side struck a large tree.
