Md. Woman Dies From Injuries Sustained in Seaford Area Crash

Posted:
SEAFORD, Del.- Authorities say a Maryland woman severely injured in a crash near Seaford last week has died.
 
Delaware State Police said the accident occurred on shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 12, as 51-year-old Sherlmaine L. Jenkins of Cambridge, Md. was operating a 1998 Pontiac Sunfire northbound on U.S. 13 in the left lane, just south of Middleford Road. Troopers said that meantime, 65-year-old Larry D. Gray of Camden-Wyoming, Del., was operating a 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche northbound in the left lane just in front of the Sunfire and began to slow for traffic in front of him.  Jenkins failed to slow down in time and rear-ended the Avalanche, according to police.
 
Police said Jenkins, who was properly restrained, was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where she was treated for non-life-threatening injurie and released.
 
Authorities said 81-year-old Mable M. Lake of Hurlock, Md., who was an unrestrained front seat passenger, was projected forward into the windshield during the crash.  She was removed from the scene by EMS and initially transported to Nanticoke Memorial.  She was later airlifted to Christiana Medical Center where she remained until she succumbed to her injuries on Tuesday, Dec. 18.
 
Gray was properly restrained and not injured in the crash, police said.
 
The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit continues to investigate the accident.
