LINCOLN, Del.- Authorities are investigating a three-vehicle crash near Lincoln that left two people dead and five others hurt, including a Delaware lawmaker who suffered minor injuries. 

Delaware State Police said a husband and wife have been identified as the two that died in the accident. They were identified by police as Priscilla Inez Saez, 36, and her husband, Eduardo Miguel Saez, 36, both of Milton.

The accident occurred  shortly after 9 a.m. Police said a Kia Rio being operated by Priscilla Inez Saez was traveling southbound on South DuPont Boulevard just north of Haflinger Road when it crossed the median and struck a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck head-on as it was traveling northbound. 

Police said the impact of the initial crash caused the vehicles to enter into the right northbound lane and strike a Chrysler 300 being operated by Delaware Rep. David L. Wilson, R-Cedar Creek-Hundred, on the driver's side.  After the impact, the pickup remained in the center of the northbound lanes and the Kia Rio overturned and came to a stop in a cornfield on its driver's side.  The Chrysler 300 came to an uncontrolled stop in the corn field but remained upright, police said.

Troopers said Priscilla Inez Saez, who was properly restrained, and her husband, Eduardo Miguel Saez, who was not properly restrained, were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Twenty-seven-year-old Carlos Farrera-Diaz of Milton, who was the driver of the Silverado, and passenger 27-year-old Erick Oswaldo Torres-Castillo, of Delmar, Md., were transported to Milford Memorial Hospital where they were admitted with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Another passenger of the Silverado, 37-year-old Cirio Sanchez-Diaz of Selbyville, was transported to Beebe Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. A fourth passgner, 24-year-old Juan Jesus Grimaldo-Martinez of Selbyville, was initially transported to Milford Memorial Hospital and later flown to Christiana Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Wilson, who police said was properly restrained, was removed by EMS and transported to Milford Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into the crash.  Both northbound lanes and the left southbound lane of US113 were closed for approximately three and a half hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
