HARTLY, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a three-car crash in Hartly that sent three people to the hospital.
Troopers said the crash happened Wednesday at about 4:45 p.m. as 25-year-old Glenn M. Outten of Harrington driving a 2012 Kia Rio southbound on Pearsons Corner Road and approaching the intersection with Lockwood Chapel Road. Meantime, 66-year-old Shirley A. Harris of Dover was driving a 2004 Mercedes Benz S-Class eastbound on Lockwood Chapel Road and came to a stop at the stop sign. Police said Harris then pulled into the intersection and struck the Kia, which had the right of way, on the rear passenger's side. According to investigators, the Kia began to spin clockwise in the roadway and then struck a 2007 Volkswagen Jetta traveling northbound on Pearsons Corner Road.
Police said Outten, who was not properly restrained, was ejected from the Kia and landed on the side of the roadway. He was removed from the scene by EMS and initially transported to Kent General Hospital before being flown to Christiana Hospital where he is listed in stable condition.
Police said the driver of the Volkswagen, identified as 42-year-old Edward J. Simpson of Dover, was properly restrained. He had to be extricated from the car before being transported by EMS to Kent General Hospital where he was admitted with non-life-threatening injuries.
Harris was properly restrained and transported to KGH with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police. She was cited by troopers for failure to remain stopped at a stop sign. Investigators said Harris' 7-year-old granddaughter, who was properly restrained in a rear seat, was not injured in the crash and turned over to a parent at the scene.
