A Millsboro man has died following an accident in which his car left the roadway, hit a ditch and flew into the air near Ellendale Saturday night, police said.

The crash happened at approximately 10:30 p.m. on U.S. 113 near the intersection with McColleys Chapel Road.

Delaware State Police say Kenneth O. Grinnell, 63, was driving his 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee south on U.S. 113 when the vehicle left the west side of the roadway.

Grinnell attempted to right the car, but the vehicle eventually struck a tree, police said. The car continued on the road before striking a ditch and going airborne.

Grinnell, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle.

He was flown to Christiana Hospital, where he died Monday.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident.
