MILLSBORO – Delaware State Police report a 22-year-old Georgetown woman died in a single-vehicle crash Monday evening north of Millsboro.

Ms. Andrews, who was properly restrained, was extensively trapped in the vehicle and was pronounced dead from multiple traumatic injuries.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this crash.
