A crash on Route 1, involving a panel truck and a pick-up truck towing a camper, has left a New Castle man dead.

The wreck happened southbound near the Kent/New Castle County line Monday shortly before noon.

State Police say the pick-up truck with its camper was parked off the shoulder when the larger truck drifted onto the shoulder and smashed into the back of the parked camper.

The panel truck spun around and landed in a grassy area.

A passenger in the panel truck, 37-year-old Michael Stigler of New Castle, died at the scene.

The driver was flown to Christiana Hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening.

The man and woman in the other vehicle were not hurt.
