Nature: Vehicle Accident – Standby Assistance – Wilmington Manor

Location: DuPont Highway @ School Lane


On Saturday, December 11, 2021, the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company provided a designated standby crew to permit the Wilmington Manor Volunteer Fire Company to coordinate and conduct their Annual Firefighter Appreciation Banquet to recognize their own.  These assignments included a fully staffed aerial (tower) truck and rescue assignment with personnel from Indian River, a fully staffed ambulance crew from Delaware City. 

One of the incident response alerts included a vehicle accident at the intersection of DuPont Highway and School Lane which involved two vehicles causing damage to both vehicles.

It appears that a Chevrolet Trax was traveling on DuPont Highway collided with Chevrolet Cruze. 

Two occupants were transferred to nearby medical facilities for additional observations.

The first responder assignments included vehicle stabilization, patient stabilization, traffic control, fluid and debris recovery, and overall incident mitigation.

The Delaware State Police are investigating.
