Two pedestrians were struck and killed in Fenwick Island at 11:03 June 14.

Grant D. Kinkade Sr., 45, of Westminster, Md. and Robert J. Rust Jr., 64, of Lutherville, Md., attempted to cross Lighthouse Road (Route 54) east of Dukes Road. As they walked from the north to the south side of Lighthouse Road, they walked in front of an eastbound 2008 Jeep Wrangler, operated by Timothy L. Frank, 57, of Reistertown, Md.  The Jeep struck both pedestrians and then came to a stop on the shoulder of the roadway.

Kinkade was pronounced dead at the scene. Rust was airlifted to Christiana Hospital where he was pronounced dead.  Frank and the two passengers in his vehicle were uninjured.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation. Lighthouse Road was closed for approximately four hours as troopers investigated and cleared the crash.
