Nature: Vehicle Accident w/Entrapment

Location: Indian Mission Rd and Silicato Dr., Millsboro, DE 19966


On Tuesday morning, November 17th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for a vehicle accident on Indian Mission Road at Silicato Drive.  It was reported to be a two-vehicle collision with entrapment.

Emergency response units from Indian River included Rescue 80 from the Oak Orchard facility and Engine #80-1 from the Long Neck facility as well as the Delaware State Fire Police.  Additional emergency alerts included the Sussex County Paramedics, the local emergency medical services provider, and the Delaware State Police Aviation Unit (Trooper #2) and Patrol Units.

Emergency response crew assignments included vehicle stabilization, traffic control, assistance with patient stabilization, secure access to the occupant's compartment of the vehicle, occupant extrication, fluid and debris recovery, as well as incident mitigation.  One occupant was transported to nearby medical facilities for additional observation and the aviation unit was cancelled.

It appears that a maroon Ford Explorer was traveling on Indian Mission Road when it collided with a Cadillac SUV that was on Silicato Drive.  The Cadillac continued into a nearby wooded area striking a tree.

The Delaware State Fire Police coordinated traffic control for the duration of the incident.

The Delaware State Police are investigating.
