Tractor-Trailer, 2 Cars Crash Collide Milford

Updated:

MILFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a Sunday afternoon crash north of Milford that involved a tractor-trailer and two cars.

Troopers said the accident occurred at approximately 1:24 p.m., as 33-year-old Steven Popa of Smyrna was operating a 2007 Peterbilt tractor-trailer southbound on Bay Road (US113/SR1) in the right lane approaching the traffic light at Thompsonville Road. Police said that meantime, a 2008 Nissan Xterra being operated by 51-year-old Barbara Allen of Greensboro, Md., was coming to a stop in the right lane of Bay Road due to the traffic light turning red.

Police said a third driver, 77-year-old Patricia Campbell of Millerstown, Pa., was operating a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country in the right lane behind the Xterra and was slowing for the light as well.

According to investigators, Popa failed to see the traffic slowing in time and rear-ended the minivan, which in turn rear-ended the Xterra. This resulted in all of the vehicles being pushed off the west side of the roadway.

Police said Campbell and her husband Albert, who were properly restrained, were removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Milford Memorial Hospital where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Troopers said Allen and a 10-year-old female passenger were wearing their seat belts and were not injured in the crash.

Popa, who also was wearing a seat belt, was not injured in the crash and was cited for in attentive driving, police said.

The southbound lanes of Bay Road north of Thompsonville Road were shut down for approximately an hour and a half as the crash was investigated and cleared.
