Truck, Farm Tractor Collide in Magnolia

Posted:

MAGNOLIA, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a Thursday afternoon collision involving a truck and a farm tractor hauling a wagon full of crushed corn in Magnolia.

Police said the accident occurred shortly after 2 p.m. as 27-year-old Clinton M. Wilson of Dover was operating a 2007 John Deere tractor pulling a wagon full of crushed corn southbound on the shoulder of Bay Road (US 113/SR1) just south of Trap Shooters Road. Troopers said that meanwhile, 37-year-old Paul T. Carter of Harrington was operating a 2006 Ford F55 utility style truck southbound on Bay Road in the right lane. 

Troopers said that for unknown reasons, Carter's attention was diverted and he entered into the southbound shoulder, striking the rear of the wagon. The impact then caused the wagon and tractor to overturn, spilling the crushed corn into the southbound lanes. Investigators said the tractor and wagon continued off the west side of the road and onto the grassy shoulder where it came to a stop. 

According to police, as a result of the crash Wilson was ejected from the tractor and landed on the shoulder of the road.  The Ford continued southbound and began sliding counterclockwise in the roadway before entering into the center grass median where it overturned and came to a stop partially in the left lane of northbound Bay Road.

Wilson was airlifted from the scene by state police helicopter and transported to Christiana Medical Center where he is currently being treated for serious injuries.
 
Police said Carter, who was properly restrained, was slightly injured in the crash but refused treatment at the scene.  He was cited for careless driving.
 
Bay Road traffic in both directions was impacted for approximately three and a half hours as crews worked to clean up the crushed corn and the crash was investigated.  There were no hazardous materials involved in the crash, police said.
