LAUREL, Del.- A Millsboro man is facing DUI, vehicular assault and related charges after he crashed his car into a Laurel store and injured his passenger, authorities said. 

Delaware State Police said the incident occurred at around midnight Thursday as 22-year-old Trent L. Hitchens was operating a 2014 Ford Mustang southbound on Shiloh Church Road and approaching Laurel Road (SR24). According to investigators, Hitchens failed to stop at the posted stop sign and continued in a southwesterly direction before entering into the parking lot of the Sandy Fork General Store located at 12324 West Laurel Road.  The Mustang then struck a gas pump in the front of the store before crashing into the front of the business, police said.
 
Hitchens was contacted at the scene and was taken into custody after a DUI investigation ensued.  His passenger, 29-year-old Raymond C. Davis of Millsboro, was airlifted from the scene to Christiana Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.
 
Hitchens was later charged with first-degree vehicular assault, driving under the influence of alcohol, failure to have insurance in possession, failure to have registration in possession, failure to have a license in possession and failure to stop at a stop sign.  He was ordered held in the Sussex Correctional Institution on $2,800 secured bond.
