On Feb. 7, 2015, at about 11:40 a.m. a 2005 Honda Odyssey minivan driven by Murali Jegannathan, 48 of Middletown, was traveling northbound on Industrial Drive when it made a left turn onto Main Street.  During the course of the turn, the vehicle collided with a 22-year-old male pedestrian from Middletown who was crossing the roadway with the pedestrian signal, and in a marked crosswalk.

The struck pedestrian was flown to Christiana Medical Center by the Delaware State Police Helicopter where he was treated and held for observation.

Jegannathan was cited for failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
