Texas man killed after being hit by car in Delaware


NEWARK, Delaware — A Texas man has been killed after being hit by a car in Delaware.

Delaware State Police say 39-year-old Carl Timm of Richardson, Texas, was trying to cross an intersection on a state highway in Newark, Delaware around 1 a.m. Wednesday when a car slammed into him, lost control and then hit an ambulance.

Police say the force of the impact vaulted Timm into the windshield of the car and then threw him into the roadway. Police say Timm was not in a crosswalk when he was hit and may have been drinking.

The driver of the car, 30-year-old Moses Tamba, was not injured. The driver of the ambulance and a patient inside also were uninjured.

The crash remains under investigation.
