Delaware State Police have identified 48-year-old George D. Berkowitz of Hamburg, N.J., as the driver and victim in a July 29 fatal single-car crash in Milton.
Delaware State Police spokeswoman Melissa Jaffe said Berkowitz crashed his 2017 Chevrolet Impala into a tree near the intersection of Chestnut and Church streets. Jaffe said Berkowitz was not properly restrained when his car veered off the roadway, and he thrown from the vehicle.
Debris from the car struck an occupied nearby home, but no one at the house was hurt. Chestnut Street was closed for three hours while the scene was investigated and cleared. The crash is still under investigation.
