On Friday, November 16, 2018 at 21:23 hours the Ellendale Fire Co. and Sussex County EMS were alerted for a pedestrian struck at DuPont Boulevard and Fleatown Road north of Ellendale. Arriving crews found a male patient in the northbound lanes of US 113 that had been struck by a vehicle. A helicopter from Delaware State Police Aviation Section was dispatched to the scene due to the mechanism of injury and after EMS units from Ellendale and Sussex County completed their assessment, the decision was made to utilize the helicopter to fly one trauma patient to Christiana Hospital in New Castle County. Fire crews from the Ellendale and Lincoln City stations closed all lanes of DuPont Boulevard and established a landing zone for the helicopter just north of the scene. Patient care was transferred and units cleared at 22:04 hours.

Units responding: Ambulance A-75, Ambulance B-75, Engine 75-2, Engine 75-3, Rescue 75-6, 75 Command
