Milton Man Cited for DUI, Other Offenses Following Two Crashes


REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.– A Milton man is recovering from minor injuries after police say his car overturned Tuesday night while he was driving under the influence in Rehoboth Beach.

According to Delaware State Police, the accident happened at around 9:10 p.m. at the intersection of Coastal Highway and Rehoboth Avenue. Troopers say Alan Wingo, 30, was driving southbound on Coastal Highway when he failed to stop at a red light before crossing Rehoboth Avenue.

Troopers said Wingo was then hit on the passenger’s side by a car driven by a 41-year-old Rehoboth Beach man heading northbound. The impact caused Wingo’s car to overturn, police said, and he was transported to Beebe Healthcare with minor injuries.

Police cited Wingo for DUI, possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended or revoked license, failure to stop at a red light and other traffic-related offenses.

Troopers have learned Wingo was also involved in a hit and run crash on Country Club Road near Winners Circle moments before the incident on Coastal Highway. They say Wingo sideswiped a car driven by a 63-year-old Rehoboth Beach man, traveling in the opposite direction. For that, police charged Wingo with leaving the scene of a property damage collision.

No one else was injured in either crash, police said. Traffic on Coastal Highway was affected for about an hour and a half following the crash Tuesday night.
