SMYRNA, Del.- Delaware State Police say a 48-year-old man had to be rushed to the hospital after being struck by a van west of Woodland Beach early Sunday evening.
Troopers said that shortly after 8 p.m., 28-year-old Katie Sue Janson of Smyrna was operating a 1998 Dodge Caravan westbound on Woodland Beach Road when George A. Prentice of New Castle walked into the roadway after he emerged from the phragmites. Police said Janson attempted to avoid striking Prentice by swerving to the left, but ultimately struck him with the right front of her van. Janson brought her van to a controlled stop and notified 911 of the crash.
Prentice was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Kent General Hospital in Dover where he was admitted due to his injuries. He was cited for drunk on the highway.
Police said Janson and her two young sons, who were properly restrained, were not injured in the crash.
Woodland Beach Road was closed for approximately an hour as the crash was investigated and cleared.
