FELTON, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a crash in which a car struck a house.

According to police, the incident occurred at approximately 11:11 a.m. Saturday, as Carlot Stinvil was operating a 1997 Nissan Maxima northbound on Route 13, just north of Barney Jenkins Road.  DSP said the Nissan first exited the roadway at 7571 South DuPont Highway, striking a mailbox before driving into a ditch.  Police said the vehicle continued northbound across two private driveways before crashing through a wooden fence post located at 7517 South DuPont Highway. 

According to DSP, the Maxima continued across the front lawn, striking the corner of the deck at the residence.  As the car continued through the yard, police said it struck a dirt berm, causing it to become airborne and drive across the back of a 1995 Lexus parked in the driveway.  Police said the Nissan finally came to a stop after it crashed into a house located at 7497 South DuPont Highway.

Delaware State Police indicated that at the time of the crash, the house was occupied by three adults.  A 55-year-old female was transported to Kent General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while a male and female adult were uninjured.

Police said Stinvil was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Kent General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  He was cited by Troopers for inattentive driving, driving without a valid license, and no proof of insurance.

According to police, Kent County Code Enforcement inspected the residence and condemned it due to the structural damage.

US-13 northbound was closed at Barney Jenkins Road for approximately an hour-and-a-half as the crash was investigated and cleared.
