Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.- The Dover Police Department was forced to close down a major intersection Monday morning following an accident involving two tractor-trailers.

Police said that at around 1 a.m., a tractor-trailer was heading west on Scarborough Road crossing Route 13 when a second tractor-trailer ran a red light while heading south on Route 13.

According to police, the two vehicles collided in the intersection. The second one became disabled, forcing the closure of the roadway for more than two hours.

Police said both drivers were taken to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the second tractor-trailer, Sherman Overton, was cited for failing to stop at a red light.
