MILFORD, Del.— Delaware State Police say three people were injured in a four-vehicle, chain-reaction crash that occurred Friday morning on Route 1 north of Milford.
Troopers responded to the scene at around 10:40 a.m. in the area of the North DuPont Boulevard split and said 20-year-old Clarence Cartwright of Milford had been driving a Mitsubishi Mirage southbound in the left lane of Route 1 when he changed into the right lane to take the exit toward Milford. Troopers said traffic was stopped on SB Route 1 due to a crash investigation by Milford police in the area of 10th Street.
According to authorities, Cartwright failed to stop in time and hit the back of a Lexus ES250 operated by 37-year-old Jaime M. Soliven of East Brunswick, N.J, pushing it forward into a Nissan Titan driven by 63-year-old James L. Bruton of Oxford, Pa.
Officials said the Nissan struck the rear of a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu operated by 48-year-old Laura L. Nichols of Wilmington. According to police, all four vehicles remained in the right lane which was shut down for about an hour and a half while the crash was investigated and cleared.
Investigators said Soliven and his two passengers, a 32-year-old woman and a 2-year-old girl, were all properly restrained and were transported to Milford Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police said no other drivers were injured.
Cartwright was cited for inattentive driving and no proof of insurance.
