Delaware Community Paid Obituaries To School Principal Died In A Crash

The Delaware school community is mourning the death of an elementary school principal and has paid its obituaries to him. He was killed in a motorcycle crash in New Castle County, Delaware.

47-year-old Dr. Terrance "Newt" Newton was principal of Warner Elementary School in Wilmington and was on his post since July 2019.

Delaware Governor John Carney said in his regards that Dr. Terrance was a beloved principal and a very helpful human being.

The governor himself visited the school on Tuesday to extend his support to the students and staff of the school.

The superintendent of Red Clay Schools, Dorrell Green, released a statement on Newton's death. He called him an inspirational leader who reshaped his many students.

As per police records, the accident happened around 10:45 p.m. Friday when he was on his way near the 100 block of Old Baltimore Pike in Newark.

After the crash, New Castle County paramedics were called to the place and found Newton lying in the roadway.

Medics say that due to the accident Dr. Terrance was thrown off his bike and as a result, he suffered a head injury. As per the police, he was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Newton was given first aid treatment by the paramedics and then he was taken to Christiana Hospital. Here he later died because of his fatal injuries.

School officials say that a crisis response team will provide counseling and support for the students and staff of the school.

The crash is still under investigation.
