A Laurel woman is facing multiple traffic citations after allegedly causing a three car crash on U.S. Route 13 in Seaford on July 8. She and her two passengers were taken to the hospital for minor injuries sustained during the crash.
Three people are in the hospital after a three-vehicle crash on U.S. Route 13 in Seaford on July 8.
The crash occurred around 2 p.m. as Laurel resident Anna M. Collick, 50, drove a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am northbound on U.S. 13 approaching Concord Road, said Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier.
A 2007 Dodge 2500 Sprinter van was stopped at a red light behind a 2013 Dodge Ram pick-up truck when, for an unknown reason, Collick failed to stop the Pontiac in time and struck it with such force that the Pontiac went underneath the van. The van then hit the back of the pickup truck, Fournier said.
Collick and two passengers, an adult and a teenager, were all wearing seatbelts and taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Collick was cited for inattentive driving, driving while suspended or revoked, no proof of insurance and no registration in possession.
The van’s operator, 34-year-old Michael J. Wilson, of Elmer, N.J., was uninjured in the crash.
The truck’s operator, 45-year-old Louis P. Vogler of Lebanon, N.H., was also uninjured.
Fournier said the crash affected already jammed traffic due to a gas leak in Seaford. The crash was cleared within two hours.
