The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a single vehicle crash that has claimed the life of a Frankford man.

Selbyville: Delaware State Police say around 12:30 a.m. Saturday February 4, 2017 Harrison O. McCray, 34 of Frankford, was operating a 2005 Cadillac CTS southbound on Parker Road at an apparent high rate of speed approaching a moderate left curve just north of Cliff Road when the vehicle failed to negotiate the curve and exited the west side of the road where it entered an open field and began to rotate counter-clockwise.

According to police spokesman, Gary Fournier, who provided the release, the wheels of the car then dug into the soft soil and began to barrel roll over a distance of approximately 200’ before coming to a stop in an upright position. Harrison McCray, who was not properly restrained, was ejected from the Cadillac. He was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Atlantic General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Fournier said, the Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident. It is unknown at this time if alcohol or drugs were contributing factors in this case. Parker Road was closed for approximately two and a half hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
