A 24-year-old Millsboro man died May 9 after police say he ran off a Millsboro roadway.

Wilkinson failed to maintain the travel lane and drove off the west edge of the roadway, striking a large standing tree, she said.

Wilkinson was not properly restrained; he was transported to Beebe Healthcare where he was pronounced deceased, Jaffe said.
