Darrick A Wright

Darrick and sister Erica

My cousin Darrick was killed in a car accident early Sunday morning. He was only 19 years old and was in the Air Force. He had his head on his shoulders and was going in the right direction. This is very hard and all the family are very stunned. As of right now we don't have a lot of information because of the investigation.
I have added the article from the newspaper in Dover.

DOVER -- Three people, including two active-duty airmen at Dover Air Force Base, died in a single-car crash early Sunday morning in west Dover.
According to Dover police, the men were traveling west on Hazlettville Road (Del. 15) in a 2001 Ford Mustang at a high rate of speed. As it passed through the Mifflin Road intersection, the car ran off the north side of the road, struck a road sign, then ran into a utility pole. All three victims were ejected from the car.

The victims were identified as Airman Darrick Wright, 19,
and Airman First Class Sean McDowell, 24, both of Dover Air Force Base,
and Jorma Reeser, 22, of Dover.

Pending the results of tests being conducted by the state medical examiner's office, Counselman said he could not say who was driving the car or whether alcohol played a role in the crash. Two of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene. The third was pronounced dead at Kent General Hospital in Dover.Lt. Brian Maguire, DAFB spokesman, confirmed Monday that Wright and McDowell were stationed at the base. He said base officials had sent a team of their own to inspect the crash site.

"Yes, we had personnel there at the scene as part of a safety investigation," he said, adding that he was conferring with the base's legal department to determine what other information might be released.
