WILMINGTON, Del. -

A 54-year-old Townsend, Delaware man was the victim who died in Tuesday's fatal crash along I-495, Delaware State Police announced.

According to troopers, 54-year-old Steven Carbone was killed in the two car crash at Edgemoore Road around 3:30 p.m.

According to investigators, a Pontiac Montana was headed north in the left lane of I-495. Troopers say the driver tried to enter the right lane but realized another vehicle was trying to change lanes into the same space.

The driver tried to avoid the car by steering to the left, but lost control and drove into a grass median, striking a guardrail between the northbound and southbound lanes, investigators said.

After hitting the guardrail, troopers say the Pontiac became airborne and landed on top of a Mazda 3, which was driven by Carbone. The Pontiac came to rest on the roof of the Mazda.

Troopers say Carbone was pronounced dead at the scene. No charges have been filed, state police said.
