34-year-old killed in Christmas Eve crash on Route 1 north near Christiana
A Bear man died Thursday night in a two car crash on Route 1 in Christiana, Delaware State Police said.
According to police, the 34-year-old was driving north on Route 1, just south of the Interstate 95 overpass, when he lost control of his Honda Civic and hit a concrete barrier on the right shoulder of the road.
The man got out of the car following the crash and was standing in the left lane of the road when a 54-year-old woman from Townsend, who was also driving north, hit the man's Civic.
After hitting the Civic, the woman's car also hit the man. He died on scene, while the woman was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
Police said there was "steady rainfall and limited lighting in the area" at the time of the wreck.
The man, whom police have not yet identified, was not wearing reflective clothes and was not carrying a flashlight. Police closed Route 1 north for about two hours while troopers investigated.
