  • A 4-year-old Springfield, Va., girl died Saturday (Nov. 7) as a result of injuries suffered in a crash along Route 1 near the Midway Shopping Center, south of Lewes.
    Police said Malcolm D'Souza, also of Springfield, was stopped in a line of traffic in the southbound lanes of Route 1, when a Toyota truck, driven by 37-year-old Lisa M. Drake, of Summerville, S.C., failed to stop and hit the back of D'Souza's van, causing it to plow into next car in line.
    Victoria D'Souza, who was in a child seat and belted at the time of the crash, was taken to Beebe Hospital, where she later died of her injuries.
    Police said alcohol is not suspected as factor in the crash.
