LINCOLN, Del. – Authorities say one person died and another was injured after a car collided with a dump truck near Lincoln on Tuesday afternoon.

Delaware State Police said that shortly after 3 p.m., a 2002 Pontiac Firebird traveling north on Cedar Creek Road, just south of Johnson Road, entered the southbound lane while exiting a slight right curve in the roadway. The car went directly in the path of a 2000 International dump truck.

According to police, the driver tried to avoid a collision by veering right and re-entering the northbound lane, but then veered back left causing the car to rotate counter-clockwise.

The passenger’s side of the car was hit by the dump truck.

Both vehicles stopped in a ditch off the west side of the road, which is when the car became fully engulfed in flames while the driver remained in the vehicle.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the dump truck, James Daisey, 65, of Lincoln, was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital and treated for minor injuries.

Cedar Creek Road was shut down for six hours while police investigated and cleared the scene.
