Man struck while crossing I-95 in Delaware

Sunday, May 27, 2012

A New Castle County fire board official says an SUV hit a man who was trying to cross Interstate 95.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports that officials at the scene Sunday afternoon say the driver of a Ford Expedition tried to swerve to avoid hitting the male victim trying to cross I-95 south near the merge with Interstate 495, but was unable to avoid a crash.

Officials say the man was taken to Christiana Hospital, but he was conscious when emergency crews treated him at the scene.

All lanes are open, and there is a minimal slowdown on the roadway.
