Posted: Updated:

ELLENDALE, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a weekend crash that left one person dead and several injured.
 
It happened just after 9 p.m. Saturday on Route 113 south of West Robbins Road, about three miles south of Ellendale. 

Police said 56-year-old Cheryl Green, of Seaford, was driving a minivan on DuPont Boulevard southbound in the northbound travel lanes without headlights on.  According to police, 49-year-old Tristin Lowe of Pennsylvania could not see the the van as he approached because the van's headlight weren't on, which caused the vehicles to strike each other in the left lane.  The minivan spun and stopped in the roadway and the other car came to a stop on the median.
 
Police said a short time later 68-year-old Peter Gray of Massachusetts approached the disabled minivan. Police said Gray also could not see the minivan in the roadway and struck the right side of the van. 
 
Troopers said Green was not properly restrained at the time of the crash, and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Police said Lowe was properly restrained at the time of the crash and was removed from the scene by EMS. He was then transported to the Milford Memorial Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries before being released.
 
Troopers said Gray was properly restrained at the time of the crash was removed by EMS and transported to the BeeBe Medical Center and was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released.
 
Police said that after the initial two crashes on the US 113 northbound side of the highway, another crash occurred on US 113 southbound. According to police, Rory Monroe, 49, of Frankford, was traveling southbound in the area of the initial crash and had slowed down. Police said William C. Townsend, 72 of Georgetown, was directly behind the car and hit it with his front bumper.
 
Investigators said Townsend, along with his passenger, 82-year-old Mary Terrell of Millsboro, were properly restrained in the crash and were uninjured.
 
Police said Rory Monroe and his passenger, 48-year-old Cheryl Monroe, were properly restrained at the time of the crash. Rory Monroe was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to the Beebe Medical Center where police said he was treated for his non-life threatening injuries and released. Cheryl Monroe was uninjured in the crash, according to investigators. 
 
The DSP Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into the incidents.  US 113 southbound was shut down for approximately three hours, and US 113 northbound was shut down for approximately four hours while the crashes were investigated and cleared.

    The Seaford Eagle Diner was ripped down Tuesday morning so the owners can re-build a new restaurant on site. Owner Serkan Darilmaz says the diner was in such bad shape that renovating it would've come at an astronomical cost.
