Police Investigate Serious Crash North of Laurel

Posted: Updated:
LAUREL, Del.- The Delaware State Police are currently investigating a serious motor vehicle crash that occurred late Thursday night north of Laurel.
 
Police say the incident happened around 10:15 p.m., as 24-year-old Rodney Lee Grant, of Laurel, was driving a 2006 Dodge Ram pick-up truck southbound on East Trap Pond Road, just south of Shiloh Church Road. Investigators say as the truck entered into a moderate right curve, the truck traveled off the east side of the road and hit a driveway culvert, where it was vaulted into the air. Police say when it was landing, the truck flipped and hit a tree on the driver's side before coming to a rest on the roof.
 
Police say Grant, who was not properly restrained, was removed from the scene by State Police Aviation and flown to Christiana Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.
 
Troopers are continuing their investigation into this incident. Police say alcohol and speed may be contributing factors in this collision. 
East Trap Pond Road was closed for about three and a half hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
