FREDERICA, Del. (AP) - The principal of a middle school in Milford has been killed in a car accident.

Delaware State police and the Milford School District confirmed that 42-year-old Tricia Martin of Camden died at a hospital following the crash Friday night near Frederica. Martin’s 10-year-old daughter was critically injured in the crash.

Martin was principal of Milford Central Academy, which has over 1,000 students in 6th through 8th grades.

Police say Martin’s SUV ran off the road and struck an embankment, flipping on its side. Her daughter, Taryn, got out to ask for help, and then another SUV hit Martin’s vehicle. Taryn Martin was also hit in that collision.

Milford superintendent Phyllis Kohel says Martin’s death is “heartbreaking” for the school district. A crisis team will be at the school on Monday.
