    The Delaware State Police are investigating a deadly pedestrian accident on Coastal Highway (State Route 1) south of John J. Williams Highway in Rehoboth Beach early Sunday morning.

    Investigators told NBC10 Scott Emory, 33, and Cheryl Dunn-Winchester, 28,  were crossing the southbound lanes of Route 1 at 2:19 a.m. when they were struck by a car driven by Lisa Governa.

    Emory and Dunn-Winchester, both of Rehoboth Beach, were pronounced dead at the scene.

    Governa, 25, continued to drive southbound and stopped in a parking lot about one tenth of a mile from the crash scene, said police.

    Investigators say the area of the crash is dimly lit and Emory and Dunn-Winchester were not walking in a crosswalk.

    Alcohol is being considered a factor in the accident, said police.
