Nature: MVC – Fire Police Requested – Washdown Requested

Location: John J Williams Hwy and Streets Road, Millsboro, DE 19966


On Tuesday morning, June 30th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for the following involving a vehicle accident on John J. Williams Highway:

  • Initial Request Fire Police Assist – Traffic Control; and

  • Second Request Washdown Requested.

Emergency response units from Indian River included Rescue 80 and Chief 80-15 from the Oak Orchard facility and Engine #80-1 from the Long Neck facility as well as the Delaware State Fire Police.

Emergency response crew assignments included fluid and debris recovery, and traffic control.  Engine #80-1 was cancelled while responding to the incident location.

It appears that dump truck was traveling westbound on John J. Williams Highway and a small pick up truck was traveling eastbound attempting to turn onto Streets Road at the time of the collision.  The dump truck came to a stop off the shoulder of the roadway into the wooded area.  The local emergency medical services provider responded for an injured person which resulted in a patient refusal.

The Delaware State Fire Police coordinated the temporary roadway closure for the duration of the incident.  

The Delaware State Police are investigating.
