Millsboro crash injures two people

MILLSBORO — A crash in Millsboro Saturday evening seriously injured a child and left a woman with minor injuries.

Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Michael Austin said the initial investigation has determined that a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by a 59-year-old Selbyville man, was stopped at a red light, in the left turn lane of northbound DuPont Boulevard at the intersection with Town Center Boulevard.

Cpl. Austin said a 2004 Volkswagen Jetta, driven by a 51-year-old Georgetown woman, was traveling in the southbound right lane of DuPont Boulevard approaching the same intersection. The traffic signal changed and the Chevrolet proceeded with its turn with a green arrow. The Jetta allegedly failed to stop at the red light and proceeded through the intersection, with its front end striking the front right end of the Chevy.

The driver of the Chevy, who was properly restrained, was not injured. Impairment on his behalf is not deemed as a factor in the crash.

The driver of the Jetta, who was properly restrained, was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford with minor injuries. Impairment on her behalf is not deemed as a factor in the crash. She was cited for failure to stop at a red light, driving without a valid license and failure to have registration card in possession.

A 4-year-old rear seat passenger in the Jetta, who was properly restrained in a booster seat, sustained serious injuries and was transported to the A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington

An adult male front seat passenger in the Jetta, who was properly restrained, was uninjured.

Cpl. Austin said the investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Trooper K. Campbell at Troop 4 by calling 302-856-5850.
