REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is investigating a crash that claimed the life of a Magnolia man last weekend.
 
Police say just after 3 p.m on April 2, troopers responded to Route 1, just north of Holland Glade Road, for the report of a two-vehicle crash. Troopers say 18-year-old John Weeks was driving a truck in the center lane when he swerved into the left hand lane to avoid striking another car, which had just entered into his path after exiting the parking lot of the K-Mart store. The front of the truck then struck another car in the left lan, driven by Richard W. Carmean, III, 55, of Magnolia.
 
After the collision, police say both drivers were able to pull their vehicles to a controlled stop. Both operators, and a woman in Carmean’s car, told troopers they were uninjured and refused medical treatment at the scene. No damage was observed, therefore, both drivers agreed to exchange information, and after doing so, were released.
 
After returning home, police say Carmean began to feel discomfort and went to the Kent General Hospital, where he died on Monday, April 4. His body was then transported to the Division of Forensic Sciences where an autopsy determined that Carmean had died as a result of injuries he sustained in the crash.
 
The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit has assumed this investigation and is asking anyone who may have witnessed this crash to contact Master Corporal Jay Burns at 302-703-3266. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
