Woman had to be extricated from vehicle
Delaware State Police are continuing to investigate a serious crash that occurred Friday in Rehoboth.
The incident occurred at 9:45 a.m. on Friday, November 9. An International concrete mixer was traveling southbound on Coastal Highway (Route 1), just south of John J. Williams Highway (Route 24), as a Mercury Mariner was traveling northbound in the left turn lane of Route 1, approaching Route 24. For unknown reasons, the Mariner left its travel lane, crossed a concrete median and entered the southbound lane in front of the concrete mixer, resulting in a collision.
The operator of the Mariner, a 48-year-old female from Lewes, was properly restrained and was trapped in the vehicle. She was extricated by emergency crews and the Sussex County Technical Rescue Team. She was transported to Beebe Medical Center and later transferred to Christiana Hospital, where she was listed in serious but stable condition.
The driver of the cement mixer, a 34-year-old male from Dover, was properly restrained and was transported to Beebe Medical Center, where he was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries.
The crash remains under investigation.
