Laurel Man Injured in Saturday Evening Crash

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a single car crash that left a Seaford man seriously injured late Saturday afternoon.
 
Police said the crash occurred just before 6 p.m., as 29-year old James D. Laplant of Laurel was operating a 1997 Ford van. Police said Laplant was traveling on Laurel Road just west of Adams Road in Laurel, when for an unknown reason, he left the roadway. Troopers said as Laplant attempted to re-enter the road, he over-corrected, causing the van to overturn several times before coming to a rest.
 
Laplant was removed from the scene by Delaware State Police Aviation (Trooper 2) and flown to the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center where he was admitted for his serious injuries. The crash remains under investigation.

Laurel Road was closed for approximately one hour as the crash was investigated and cleared.
