A Wyoming man has been arrested after he struck a pedestrian on the sidewalk on Front Street and left the scene.  Delaware State Police say 26 year old Bradford Husfelt was trying to pass a vehicle in front of him – on the right side – and went up on the sidewalk and partially onto a front yard.  Husfelt struck a landscape timber – and while still driving on the sidewalk struck a 78 year old man from Wyoming.  The victim was taken to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where he died from his injuries.  Husfelt was arrested at his home – the car under a car cover.  He’s charged with manslaughter, driving under the influence of drugs and multiple other offenses.  He’s being held at SCI in default of a cash only bond.
