New Castle County police have identified a man who was killed in a Memorial Day car crash. Police say the man, Larry D. Greer, 44, was speeding when he pulled out of the Hickory Hill development onto Mill Creek Road about 3:45 p.m. Monday and the truck slid off the road, struck a tree and rolled down the 50-foot embankment.

Police spokesman Cpl. Trinidad Navarro says the truck landed upright, but sustained significant damage. He says Greer, who was not wearing a seat belt was pronounced dead at the scene.

Navarro says investigators believe alcohol played a role in the accident.
