Serious Two-Vehicle Crash Closes Rt. 113 Near Georgetown for 2 Hours

GEORGETOWN, Del. -  A 17-year-old Delaware boy is in critical condition following a car accident, police say.

According to Delaware State Police, the crash happened around 4:30 p.m. as 17-year-old Noah L. Rose of Georgetown, driving a 2002 Chrysler Sebring, came to a complete stop in the center cross-over on DuPont Boulevard (US-113) preparing to turn left on Alms House Road. Nicholas E. May, 35, of Winnsboro, Texas, was driving a 1993 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck southbound on US-113 in the left lane approaching the intersection with Alms House Road.  A full size Ford van, traveling in front of the pick-up truck, had just pulled into the left turn lane at the cross-over where Rose was stopped.  At the same time, Rose began to proceed across the southbound lanes of US-113 and was struck on the passenger's side by the front of the Chevy pick-up.

Rose, who had been wearing a seatbelt, was removed from the scene by Delaware State Police Aviation (Trooper 2) and initially flown to Beebe Medical Center before being transported by ambulance to Christiana Hospital Trauma Center where he is currently in critical condition.

May was also wearing a seatbelt and was transported by EMS to Beebe Medical Center, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the accident shut down the southbound lanes of US-113 at Alma Road for almost two hours Wednesday afternoon.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident.
