Severe Auto Accident US Route 13 and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. 8-29-15

Complaint # 50-15-25174

Date/Time:  Saturday, August 29th, 2015 at approximately 3:11PM

Location: Route 13 and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Officer Releasing Information:   M/Cpl. Mark Hoffman, Public Information Officer

Narrative:

The Dover Police Department is investigating a severe motor vehicle accident that occurred at the intersection of Route 13 and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd shortly after 3:00 this afternoon.  A silver Chevrolet HHR being operated by a 31-year-old female was in the left turn lane of northbound US Route 13, and preparing to make a left onto Martin Luther King Kr. Blvd.  Meanwhile, a 31-year-old male was operating a Kawasaki ZX6R on the southbound side of Route 13, approaching the same intersection.  The motorcyclist was traveling at a high rate of speed, weaving in and out of traffic and continued through the intersection as the HHR was turning onto Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.  The motorcycle struck the passenger side of the vehicle, causing the motorcycle to flip over the vehicle and the driver to be ejected.

The operator of the motorcycle sustained life threatening injuries consisting of fractures to both arms, legs, pelvis, and multiple internal injuries.  The operator of the motorcycle was flown from Kent General Hospital to Christiana Hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

The driver of the HHR was treated for minor injuries and released.  However, her 12-year-old daughter, who was a front seat passenger suffered multiple bone fractures and internal injuries.  She was flown from Kent General Hospital to AI Dupont Children’s Hospital in critical condition.  Two rear passengers were also transported to AI Dupont Children’s Hospital from Kent General Hospital.  A six-year-old male who was seated in the rear passenger side seat suffered multiple bone fractures and a severe laceration to his head and face and is currently listed in critical condition.  A 3-year-old who was seated in the rear driver side seat suffered minor injuries from the collision but was transported to AI Dupont Hospital for evaluation and treatment.

The southbound lanes of Route 13 and Eastbound lanes of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd were shut down from 3:11PM until approximately 6:30 as investigators remained on scene to investigate the accident.  It was learned during the investigation that the motorcycle was reported stolen from Fairfax County, Virginia.  At this time no charges have been filed as the case is still under investigation.

The Dover Police Department would like to thank the Dover Fire Department for their quick response to assist at the scene and in the extraction of one of the passengers from the vehicle due to entrapment.  The below photos are courtesy of the Dover Fire Department.

Location:  Property between 100 Block of S. New St. and 100 Block of S. Governors Ave.

Officer Releasing Information:   M/Cpl. Mark Hoffman, Public Information Officer

Narrative:

The Dover Police Department is investigating an officer involved shooting that occurred shortly after 1:00PM on Friday, August 28th.  Officers were responding to a tip they received of a suspect with a handgun in the area of the 100 Block of South New Street.  Upon arrival, officers were also staged in the area of South Governors Avenue to provide assistance.  When officers arrived on scene, they observed a suspect later identified as 21-year-old Terrance Fletcher, who matched the description they were provided as being the person in possession of a firearm.  As officers approached the Fletcher, he fled eastbound through a narrow alleyway towards Governors Avenue, where the other officers were located.  As Fletcher ran towards the officers on Governors Avenue, a Dover Police officer fired his weapon, striking Fletcher in the upper thigh.  A loaded firearm was located in close proximity to Fletcher a short time later.  Officers immediately rendered aid to Fletcher and radioed for medical assistance.  Fletcher was transported to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital to be treated for his injury and is in stable condition with a non-life threatening injury.

Shortly after the incident, as officers were on scene investigating the incident, a large crowd formed on South New Street.  As the crowd grew, officers observed members of the crowd becoming hostile towards police officers from Smyrna, Milford, Capitol, and Delaware State Police Department’s responded to assist with the crowd.  Two subjects were arrested for disorderly conduct and other charges as a result.  The majority of the crowd dispersed peacefully a short time later.

The officer involved in the shooting is a 3-year-veteran of the Dover Police Department and is a member of the Street Crimes Unit.   The officer has been placed on administrative leave with pay pending the outcome of the investigation which is standard policy for all officer involved shootings.

Terrance Fletcher has been charged with Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon and Possession of a Firearm by a Person Prohibited and is being held on $20,000 cash bond.  More charges may follow based on the outcome of the investigation.
