A Frankford woman and her teenage daughter were injured Saturday morning in a multi-vehicle crash near Selbyville.
Denise Rines, 43, and her 16-year-old daughter were taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Md., with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. Both were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.
According to state police, the crash occurred on U.S. Route 113 about a half-mile north of McCabe Road at approximately 9:30 a.m. when a southbound 2009 KW Dart tractor-trailer, driven by 51-year-old Ambler, Pa., resident Cornell D. Tate attempted to change lanes.
While moving from the right lane to the left lane, the tractor-trailer came into contact with a 2010 Honda Civic, driven by 21-year-old Ocean View, N.J., resident Leah Barr, forcing the car across the median and into the northbound lanes of the highway.
It was there that Rines’ 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe struck the Honda on the passenger’s side, police said.
Barr and her 21-year-old passenger, Nikia Jawor of Villas, N.J., were initially taken to Beebe Medical Center in Lewes before being transferred to Christiana Hospital. Their status was not immediately available.
Tate was not injured in the collision.
Police said the crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
