The car then re-entered the road and came to rest in the westbound lane.

Four passengers including a 16 and 15 year old male from Laurel, a 16 year old male from Salisbury, and a 16 year old girl from Seaford were taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.

Erica Colbourne was the fifth passenger and pronounced dead at the scene. It is unkown if Colbourne was properly restrained at the time of the crash.
