Nature: Vehicle Accident

Location: Long Neck Rd and Blue Mist Dr., Millsboro, DE 19966


On Tuesday morning, April 27th, while returning from an earlier incident in Rehoboth Beach, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was alerted for a vehicle accident on Long Neck Road in the vicinity of Blue Mist Drive.  It was reported to be a single vehicle into a tree with the possibility of one injured person.

Emergency response crews from Indian River included Tanker 80 and Engine #80-3 from the Angola area, Rescue 80 from the Oak Orchard facility, Engine #80-1 from the Long Neck facility, and the Delaware State Fire Police.  Other ancillary response units included the Mid Sussex Rescue Squad.

Emergency response crew assignments included vehicle stabilization, assistance with patient stabilization if needed, traffic control, fluid and debris recovery, as well as incident mitigation activities.  Engine #80-1 and Rescue 80 were cancelled while responding to the incident location.

It appears that a black Ford F250 pick up was traveling on Long Neck Road and left the right side of the roadway for an unknown reason striking a cluster of trees causing significant damage to the vehicle and injuries the occupant of the vehicle.

The injured occupant was transported to nearby medical facilities for additional observation.

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

The Delaware State Police are investigating.
