Delaware State Police say the fatal crash on Harbeson Road (Route 5) at Carpenter Road was a head-on collision.

The incident that happened around 6:23 am Tuesday morning was between a 2012 Toyota Scion going southbound on Harbeson Road and a Dodge Ram pick-up going northbound. There was no apparent reason for the collision according to police, and both vehicles came to a stop on the southbound shoulder of Harbeson Road after the accident.

The driver of the Scion, 27-year-old Heather Harman of Milford, was pronounced dead at the scene. She was properly restrained, while the driver of the other vehicle, 49-year-old Robert Klerlein of Millsboro was treated and released at Beebe Medical Center. Police say Klerlein was not properly restrained.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit is still investigating the incident, and alcohol and drugs do not appear to be a factor. No charges have been filed.

Harbeson Road was closed for about four hours between Sam Lucas Road and Carpenter Road as the crash was investigated and cleared.
