Seaford Man Charged With DUI After Striking Telephone Pole

Posted:
SEAFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police say troopers have arrested a man for DUI after he struck a telephone pole south of Seaford.
 
Police said the incident occurred around 10:50 p.m. Thursday as 56-year-old Thomas J. Sammons of Seaford was operating a 1997 GMC Sierra westbound on Oneals Road approaching an "S" curve east of Gum Branch Road. Investigators said Sammons failed to negotiate the left curve and drove off the south side of the roadway where the front of the truck struck a utility pole, breaking it in half.
 
Sammons, who was wearing his seat belt, was removed from the scene by EMS and taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where he was released without any injuries.  Troopers then transported him to Troop 5 in Bridgeville where he was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, failure to remain within a single lane, no proof of insurance and no proof of registration. 
 
Oneals Road east of Gum Branch Road was closed for approximately three hours as the crash was investigated and cleared and utility crews worked to restore power.
