MILTON, Del.- Delaware State Police say a second person has died from injuries sustained in an early February single-car crash north of Milton.

Troopers announced that 45-year-old Ruth A. Moore, of Milton, died Sunday, Feb. 16.

According to police, Moore's death was the result of an accident that occurred just after 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 7, on Cedar Creek Road, south of Isaacs Road.

Investigators said Ruth Moore's husband, 51-year-old Charles E. Moore, was driving northbound on Cedar Creek Road at an apparent high rate of speed. Police said that when the car approached a moderate curve, it began to run off the road at which time Charles overcorrected. The car then crossed over into the southbound lanes and struck a utility pole. Police said the car then spun out, ejecting both Charles and his wife from the vehicle. Police said both were properly restrained.

Charles was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was transported to Milford Memorial Hospital but later flown to Christiana Medical Center where she was listed in critical condition prior to succumbing to her injuries. 

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into the crash.
