July 1, 2019

A driver was seriously injured and power south of Georgetown was knocked out July 1 following a two-vehicle crash.

The crash happened at 10:23 a.m. when a Georgetown man, 21, was driving a 2011 Nissan Altima north on U.S. 113 northwest of Governor Stockley Road when he failed to yield right of way as he crossed eastbound over U.S. 113 northbound, police said.

The driver struck a box truck driven by a 51-year-old Maryland man, and then struck a utility pole, police said.

The driver of the Nissan was flown by Delaware State Police helicopter to Beebe Healthcare with serious injuries; the driver of truck was taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.

Delmarva Power is currently at the scene working on the utility pole, police said.

U.S. 113 in the area of the crash is shut down, and traffic is being diverted to East Piney Grove Road, police said. Commuters should expect delays in the area and find alternate routes of travel.

Further details will be released upon the conclusion of the investigation.
