SEAFORD — An 88-year-old Laurel man died in a pedestrian crash Sunday.

At approximately 9:15 p.m., Delaware State Police said, a 2019 maroon Dodge Grand Caravan was stopped on the right shoulder of Sussex Highway, south of Ockles Road. For unknown reasons, the man exited the van and was in the right southbound lane of the highway in the path of a 2005 gold Lincoln Town Car.

The man was not wearing or carrying reflective clothing and was struck by the Town Car in the right lane, police said. He was thrown from the road and came to rest on the west edge of the grass median.

He was pronounced dead at the scene. On Tuesday, Delaware State Police identified the man as Wayne Jaggers.

The driver of the Town Car was not injured.

The road was closed for approximately 3.5 hours.
