Two injured in Harbeson crash

Two people were injured in an Aug. 11 crash in Harbeson.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a serious crash in Harbeson.

The crash occurred around 3:10 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 11, as a 2010 Chevy Cobalt was traveling west on Lewes-Georgetown Highway (Route 9). The Cobalt has stopped in the middle of the intersection with Harbeson Road (Route 5), waiting to make a left turn.

The operator of the Chevy, a 20-year-old Willow Street, Pennsylvania woman, was transported to Beebe Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. A passenger in the Chevy, a 20-year-old New Providence, Pennsylania woman, was initially transported to Beebe Medical Center and later to Christiana Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The operator of the Toyota, a 29-year-old Laurel man, was not injured and refused medical treatment at the scene.
