The Rehoboth Beach Volunteer Fire Company responded to a multi-car accident on Route 1 at 11:30 p.m., Aug. 26, near Tanger Outlets Seaside. In a press release Aug. 27, Capt. Kent Swarts said a vehicle heading north struck a second car also heading north, which sent the second car across the median and into the far southbound lane of Route 1. Swarts said one person was airlifted to Christiana Hospital by the Delaware State Police Aviation Unit, and two others were transported to Beebe Healthcare in Lewes by Rehoboth Beach and Lewes EMS units.

All northbound traffic was routed through the outlet parking lot for nearly two hours while crews worked, said Swarts. The Delaware State Police are investigating, he said.
