Address: John J Williams Hwy (in the area of Brandywood), Millsboro, DE 19966
On Tuesday, June 8th at approximately 6:01 p.m., the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for a personal injury vehicle collision on John J. Williams Highway in the area of the Brandywood development entrance. It was reported via the Sussex County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) that a single vehicle was traveling west on John J. Williams Highway and collided with a telephone pole. It was believed that the vehicle was located off of the roadway in the cow pasture; however, the utility pole was snapped in two and blocking the roadway with high intensity power lines.
It appears that a dark green Ford Explorer was traveling westbound on John J. Williams Highway and left the roadway for an unknown reason, striking a telephone pole, traveling through an electrical fence bordering the farmer’s pasture area and continuing into the field.
It appears that there were two occupants in the vehicle, one adult and one minor child. The Sussex County Paramedics were requested to provide pre-hospital emergency care before being transported, by the local EMS provider, to the local medical facilities.
The Delaware State Fire Police were requested to close the roadway for the duration of the incident. All traffic was re-routed from John J. Williams Highway on County Roads #301, #302 and County Road #48.
The Delaware State Police are investigating the incident and the highway remained closed pending a response from the Delaware Electric Cooperative crew.
