Troopers Investigate Fatal Head-On Motor Vehicle Crash

Millsboro - The Delaware State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a motor vehicle crash that resulted in the death of a 29 year old man which occurred last night north of Millsboro.

The initial investigation has determined that the crash occurred at approximately 8:10 p.m. last night, Thursday, November 20, 2014, as Delmar Chilel-Chun, 29, of Georgetown, DE, was operating a 1996 Honda Odyssey and was traveling in a westbound direction on Hardscrabble Road (SR 20) approximately .1 mile east of Country Living Road (CR 433), one mile north of Millsboro. For an unknown reason, Chilel-Chun's vehicle crossed the center line of the roadway and entered the eastbound lane where its front struck the front of a 2006 Lexus GX470, which was being operated by Dellamarie H. Keyes, 54, of Lewes, DE.

Delmar Chilel-Chun, who was properly restrained at the time of the crash, was pronounced dead at the scene. Dellamarie Keyes, who was also properly restrained at the time of the crash, was removed from the scene by Emergency Medical Services and transported to Beebe Healthcare where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation of this crash by the Delaware State Police Crash Reconstruction Unit is on-going; however, charges are not expected. Alcohol use is being considered as a factor in this crash.

Hardscrabble Road was closed for approximately 3 hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
