An 18-year-old woman from Dover was killed Wednesday morning after driving into another car’s path near Dover, Delaware State Police reported. The other driver, a 42-year-old man from Camden-Wyoming, was injured.
The 18-year-old woman was stopped in her tan 2004 Pontiac Vibe at the stop sign on Fox Road where it dead-ends into North Little Creek Road at 8:20 a.m. on Wednesday, police said. At the same time, the 42-year-old man was driving east on North Little Creek Road in a white 2019 Dodge Ram toward the intersection, where he didn’t have a stop sign.
The woman then drove out into the intersection for “unknown reasons,” according to state police, and the front of the pickup truck hit the left side of the woman’s sedan. The impact sent both cars off the road, and they ended up on the left shoulder of North Little Creek Road past the intersection.
The man was not wearing a seat belt. He was taken to the hospital, but police said his injuries are not life-threatening. The woman — whose name has not yet been released — was wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead on the scene.
The intersection was closed for about three hours, and police are still investigating the crash. Anyone with information is asked to contact Master Cpl. W. Booth at 302-698-8451 or call Delaware Crime Stoppers at 800-TIP-3333.
