GEORGETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police say three adults and an infant were injured in a head-on collision that occurred west of Georgetown early Tuesday evening.
Troopers said the accident occurred shortly before 7 p.m. as 28-year-old Robert W. Dotson of Millsboro was operating a Ford F-150 pickup truck eastbound on Old Furnace Road just east of Rementer Road. Police said that as the pickup entered into a slight curve in the road, Dotson began to lose control of the truck, which then began to slide into the westbound lane.
Troopers said 43-year-old Danny C. Burris of Rehoboth Beach was operating a Chevrolet Malibu westbound on Old Furnace Road, when he saw Dotson's pickup enter into his lane and attempted to move the right shoulder of the road but was struck head-on by the truck.
Police said that after the impact, the pickup spun clockwise and continued into some trees on the south side of the roadway where it came to a stop. The Malibu spun counter-clockwise and stopped in the eastbound travel lanes. Investigators noted that at the time of the crash, the roadways were rain-soaked.
Dotson was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released. Police cited him for careless driving.
Burris and his two passengers- 19-year-old Chamyra Lewis of Milford and 7-month-old Jayvion Burton, also of Milford- were transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.
All four people involved in the crash were properly restrained at the time of the collision, police said.
Traffic in the area was impacted for approximately an hour and a half as the crash was investigated and cleared.
