Crash at Route 1 and 16

June 8, 2018

A car crash June 8 slowed traffic at routes 1 and 16.

The crash happened at about noon when a Dodge Ram operated by a 62-year-old man was driving through a green light eastbound on Route 16 at the Route 1 intersection, said Master Cpl. Melissa Jaffe of the Delaware State Police.

As the Dodge proceeded through the intersection, Jaffe said, a Jeep Renegade driven by an 18-year-old female was traveling southbound in the left lane of Route 1 and failed to stop at the red light, striking the Dodge.

The driver of the Ram was transported to Beebe Healthcare for nonlife-threatening injuries.

The teen driver was cited for failure to stop at the red light.

Jaffe said neither driver was impaired.
