DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating an early Monday crash west of Dover that claimed the life of one woman and left another injured.

Police said the incident occurred shortly after 4 a.m. as 30-year-old Lindsay A. Stevens of Dover was operating a 2006 Mazda MPV van westbound on Hazlettville Road entering a right curve just east of Nault Road. 

Investigators said Stevens failed to negotiate the curve and the van entered into a counter-clockwise turn and traveled off the south side of the roadway. Troopers said that upon exiting the roadway, the Mazda slid approximately 140 feet sideways through some grass and overturned several times before the vehicle came to a stop in the north edge of a retention pond.

Police said Stevens and a passenger, 37-year-old Kimberly I. Proud of Camden-Wyoming, who were not properly restrained, were ejected from the vehicle prior to the vehicle ending up in the pond.  Both women were flown to Christiana Medical Center where Proud later died as a result of her injuries. Stevens is currently admitted in stable condition. 

Troopers said it appears alcohol and speed may have been contributing factors in the crash, which remains under investigation. 

Hazlettville Road between Nault Road and Quail Run was closed for approximately three hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
