2 Injured in Millsboro Crash


MILLSBORO, Del.- Delaware State Police say two people were injured in a two-vehicle crash that occurred north of Millsboro on Tuesday morning.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 11:25 a.m. as 79-year-old Eula M. B. Graves of Georgetown was operating a 2007 Chrysler 300 westbound on Avenue of Honor approaching the intersection with U.S. 113. 

Troopers said Graves failed to stop at the stop sign controlling the intersection with U.S. 113 northbound and then proceeded through the stop sign controlling the intersection with U.S. 113 southbound where she struck the rear driver's side of a 2005 Dodge Magnum being driver by a 16-year-old girl.  The impact caused the Chrysler to rotate counter-clockwise and continue westbound before striking a utility pole causing it to break and bring the power lines down across the road, according to police. Police said the Chrysler, which was carrying gas cans, then became engulfed in flames.  The Dodge was pushed in a clockwise manner and came to a stop south of the impact in the center median.
Police said Graves, who was properly restrained, was assisted out of her vehicle after the crash and transported by EMS to Beebe Medical Center where she was admitted for non-life-threatening injuries.  She was cited for failure to stop at a stop sign, failure to yield the right of way and no proof of insurance. 
The 16-year-old driver, who was properly restrained, was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford where she was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries. Troopers said they later found out that the 16-year-old had taken the vehicle from a relative without permission and did not possess a valid license to drive.  Troopers charged her with theft of a motor vehicle and driving without a valid license.  She was released to the custody of a parent pending a hearing in family court. 
U.S. 113 southbound was closed for approximately three hours as the crash was investigated, cleared and utility crews worked to repair the damaged pole.
