State Police Charge Millsboro Teen During Coastal Highway Fatal Crash Investigation

Released-Thursday, October 25, 2007

Dewey Beach-On Thursday, October 25, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. the Delaware State Police charged an 18-year-old, Millsboro man with one count of Operation of a Vehicle causing Death of another Person. On the morning of Monday, October 22, 2007 the Sussex County Grand Jury met to review this case. Upon review, it was ordered that Barry G. Boulden, Jr., 18, of Millsboro be charged with Operation of a Vehicle causing Death of another Person.

The indictment was handed down after the facts of the July 28, 2007 crash were presented to the Grand Jury. The crash claimed the life of John G. Griffith, 44 of Timonium, Maryland. During the investigation, investigators determined that alcohol and or drugs were not factors in the crash. During their investigation investigators learned that Mr. Boulden fell asleep while operating a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am. The vehicle drifted onto the shoulder and struck Mr. Griffith, causing fatal injuries.

Boulden was arrested and processed at Delaware State Police Troop Seven in Lewes. Boulden was then arraigned by Commissioner Howard at Sussex County Superior Court. Commissioner Howard ordered a non-guilty plea due to an ongoing constitutionality review of the Death by Motor Vehicle law. Barry G. Boulden, Jr. was subsequently released on an unsecured bond.
