REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - According to Delaware State Police, a utility trailer on a pickup truck became detached and collided with another vehicle on Route 24 Wednesday night.

Police said David H. Bates, 50 of Milford, was driving a pickup truck pulling the small utility trailer eastbound on John J.

After Pace struck the trailer, he drove into the westbound lanes where he struck a car being operated by Brian J. Santry, 33 of Millsboro head-on.

Pace and Santry, who police said were both properly restrained, were removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Beebe Healthcare with non-life-threatening injuries.
