Thirty-year-old firefighter Michelle Smith was killed Saturday evening while assisting an injured motorcyclist along U.S. Route 13 at School Lane. Police say Taye was driving a car that sideswiped a police car at the scene, went out of control and struck Smith and the motorcyclist. Taye left in a car that pulled up to the accident scene. That driver is still being sought.
Smith died Monday. The motorcyclist, 30-year-old Edward Reiss, of New Castle, is in stable but serious condition at Christiana Hospital.
