REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - Delaware State Police are investigating a six-car crash that sent one person to the hospital late Monday morning.

Troopers say it happened around 11:30 a.m. as 40-year-old Francis Stawicki of Rehoboth Beach was driving westbound on Route 24 just west of Coastal Highway. According to police, after Stawicki turned onto Rt. 24, a fire extinguisher attached to the side of his box truck fell off and rolled beneath the truck's brake. Troopers say this made Stawicki unable to stop as he entered the left turn lane to turn south onto a rear access road into the Walmart.

Police say Stawicki hit a mail truck that was stopped in front of him, creating a chain reaction in which four cars ahead of the mail truck were rear-ended.

According to police, only the driver of the mail truck, 41-year-old Charles Hayes of Lincoln, was injured. He was taken to Beebe Healthcare in Lewes for treatment and released shortly after.

Police say traffic in the area was affected for about an hour while the crash was cleared. No charges were filed.
