Nature: Vehicle Accident w/Entrapment

Location: In front of Wawa / McDonald’s

Address:  25916 Plaza Dr Millsboro, DE 19966


On Monday afternoon, January 4th, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for a vehicle accident on John J. Williams Highway in the vicinity of Wawa / McDonalds.  It was reported to a two-vehicle collision with one vehicle overturned with occupant entrapment.

Emergency response units from Indian River included Rescue 80 and Chief 80-15 from the Oak Orchard area and Engine #80-1 from the Long Neck facility as well as the Delaware State Fire Police.   Other ancillary alerts included the Mid Sussex Rescue Squad, the Sussex County Paramedics, and the Delaware State Police Aviation Unit – Trooper 2.

Emergency response crew assignments included vehicle stabilization, traffic control, fluid and debris recovery, assistance with patient stabilization if needed, and overall incident mitigation activities.

It was identified upon arrival of emergency response units that no occupant entrapment existed.  It appears that a silver Toyota Highlander SUV and black Buick Encore collided at the entrance to Silicato Drive and John J. Williams Highway causing the Encore to overturn.  Both vehicles suffered significant damage.  Traffic patterns were impacted on John J. Williams Highway for the duration of the incident. The Delaware State Police Aviation unit was cancelled while responding to the incident.

The Delaware State Fire Police coordinated traffic control.

The Delaware State Police are investigating.
