Seaford woman dies in multi-vehicle crash

SEAFORD – A 48-yar-old Seaford woman was killed, and three other persons were injured in a multi-vehicle crash Monday afternoon on County Seat Highway east of Seaford.

Hope A. Jackson,, driver of a 2017 Fiat Coupe, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred at about 3:34 p.m. at the intersection of County Seat Highway (US 9) and Asbury Road, said Delaware State Police spokeswoman Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe.

State police investigation revealed the Fiat was eastbound on US 9 and had stopped at the intersection with Asbury Road.

A 2014 Mustang driven by a 36-year-old Georgetown man was also eastbound on US 9 when the driver failed to see the Fiat stopped at the intersection, Cpl. Jaffe.

The Mustang struck the rear of the Fiat, which spun into the path of 2009 Ford Econoline van westbound on US 9, said Cpl. Jaffe.

The van struck the Fiat, which overturned onto its roof.

The operator of the Mustang was transported to the Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, treated and released.

The van operator, a 43-year-old Salisbury man, and a passenger were also taken to the Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

County Seat Highway in the area of Asbury Road was closed for approximately 5 1/2 hours while the crash was investigated.

The crash remains under investigation by the Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit.
