NEW CASTLE, DEL.  – Delaware State Police Spokesman Master Corporal Jeffrey R. Hale reports that Troopers have arrested an 18-year-old Bradford Pollock, of New Castle, Del., and charged him with the fatal hit and run crash which killed a 54-year-old woman at 7:55 pm on Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24, 2016.

Troopers arrested Pollock on Sunday, December 25, 2016, after they were called to respond to a residence located in the unit block of Prangs Lane, Rambleton Acres, New Castle, about a vehicle in the driveway which had front end damage to it. Upon their arrival, troopers located a white Chevrolet Impala that had front end damage to its right front area. Further examination of the vehicle revealed evidence linking the car to the crash. Troopers then contacted Pollock inside of the home and were subsequently able to identify him as the operator of the Impala which struck and killed Lisa Bolden, 54, on Christiana Road just east of East Edinburgh Drive on December 24th.

Bradford Pollock was then transported to Troop 2 where he was arrested and charged with Leaving the Scene of a Collision Resulting in Death and Driving Without a Valid License. He was arraigned at JP Court 11 and committed to the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution in default of $6,100.00 secured bail.

After the collision, the pedestrian was thrown from the car into the middle of the north end of the intersection, while the vehicle did not stop and continued westbound on SR273 to an unknown location.

On Christmas Day, police reported that the incident occurred as Bolden was crossing the westbound lanes of Christiana Road (SR273) immediately east of the intersection with East Edinburgh Drive.  An unknown type vehicle was traveling westbound on SR273 in an unknown travel lane approaching the intersection with East Edinburgh Drive when the right front area of the vehicle struck the pedestrian. 

After the collision, the pedestrian was thrown from the car into the middle of the north end of the intersection, while the vehicle did not stop and continued westbound on SR273 to an unknown location.

Bolden, who was wearing dark-colored clothing and not wearing any reflective material, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Based upon vehicle debris located at the scene, the vehicle was white in color and should have, at a minimum, damage to the right front corner area.  Witness accounts described the vehicle to be a four-door sedan and possibly from a foreign manufacturer.

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident they are asked to contact Master Corporal J. Breen at 302-365-8486.
