DSP Investigating Fatal Crash near Laurel


Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal crash where a man drove into the Broad Creek in Laurel two weeks ago. Fishermen found the body of 44 year old Jose Roaro-Alanis of Seaford just before 9pm on March 12th and contacted police. His body was taken to the State Medical Examiner to determine the cause of death. Another fisherman discovered a vehicle in the water this past Friday – which police say is Roaro-Alanis’s pickup.

Police believe Roaro-Alanis was southbound on North Central Avenue approaching the drawbridge when his truck went off the roadway and went into the water where it was fully submerged. The investigation is continuing and police ask anyone with information to call Cpl Smith at 302-703-3267 or Crime Stoppers at 800-TIP-3333.
