Man Facing DUI After Paint Tanker Overturns in Middletown

Posted:

MIDDLETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police say a 21-year-old man is facing drunk driving and related charges following a crash in Middletown that caused a tanker trailer hauling latex paint to overturn.

Police said the incident occurred about 2 a.m. Tuesday on Route 301 north of Warwick Road when a van traveling in the wrong lane collided with the tractor-trailer.

Troopers said the driver of the van, 21-year-old Yuni Gonzalez, address unknown, and the driver of the tractor-trailer, 49-year-old David Strang of Elmer, N.J., were taken to Christiana Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Gonzalez was charged with driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, driving on the wrong side of the roadway, driving without a license and failing to have insurance identification in possession.

Police said a small amount of latex paint spilled from the tanker and state environmental officials supervised removal of the rest of the paint from the trailer so it could be safely removed from the scene.
