SEAFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a driver for DUI and related charges in connection with a two-vehicle crash near Seaford that left her and three other people injured Thursday.

Police said the accident occurred at around 1:30 p.m., as 79-year-old William B. Baker of Seaford was operating a 2002 Chevrolet S10 pickup truck westbound on Stein Highway (SR20) just west of Shufelt Road. 

Baker was attempting to make a left turn into a private driveway and had come to a complete stop with his left turn signal on, according to investigators. Police said that as cars behind the pickup truck were passing on the shoulder, 29-year-old Hayley L. Womer of Laurel, who was driving a 2012 Kia Sorento westbound on SR20, failed to see the truck in time and struck the right rear corner of the S10. This caused it to roll over onto its roof into the center of the road, according to investigators. Police said Womer's car continued in a northwestern direction before coming to a stop in a ditch on the north side of the roadway.
 
Police said Baker, who was properly restrained, was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
 
Two passengers in Womer's car, a 4-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy, were not properly restrained in car seats. The 4-year-old was initially transported by EMS to Nanticoke Memorial before being flown to A.I. DuPont Children's Hospital in Wilmington with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.  The 2-year-old was transported to Nanticoke Memorial and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
 
Police said Womer, who was properly restrained, was treated at Nanticoke Memorial with non-life-threatening injuries. She was then taken into custody by troopers and transported back to Troop 5 in Bridgeville where she was charged with driving under the influence of drugs, driving while suspended or revoked, first-degree vehicular assault, two counts of second-degree vehicular assault, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of child restraint under 8 and no proof of insurance. She was released on $11,550 unsecured bail.
 
SR20 west of Shufelt Road was closed for approximately two hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
