DOVER, Del.- Delaware State Police have released the name of a 59-year-old woman killed in a Thursday evening crash in Dover. 

Troopers on Monday identified the victim as Sandra L. Frieson of Dover. 

 Troopers said the incident occurred around 6:36 p.m. Thursday as a Chevrolet Malibu driven by Frieson was traveling eastbound on Scarborough Road east of McKee Road, Dover. At the same time, a Buick LeSabre, operated by 22-year-old Alexander B. Wright, of Virginia, was traveling westbound on Scarborough Road and approaching McKee Road, police said.

Troopers said a third, unknown vehicle, possibly a white Kia passenger car, was travelling eastbound on Scarborough Road in front of the Chevrolet Malibu.  Police said the Kia pulled over to the right shoulder and the Malibu was behind the Kia, which then made a U-turn in front of the LeSabre and continued westbound. The Malibu swerved to the right onto the shoulder and lost control and started to rotate in a counterclockwise direction as it crossed over into the westbound lane into the path of the LeSabre, investigators said. Police said the front of the LeSabre struck the driver’s side door of the Malibu, which then spun counterclockwise 180 degrees before coming to a rest in the center of the roadway,.

The LeSabre traveled north of the area of impact and came to rest on the westbound shoulder, police said.

Frieson, who police said was properly restrained, was transported by ambulance to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where she was pronounced dead. 

Police said Wright, who also was properly restrained, sustained non-life threatening injuries. He was transported by ambulance to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where he was treated and released.

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident.  

Anyone who witnessed this incident or has any information is asked to call Master Cpl. J. Lane at (302) 697-4454, ext. 8457. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at http://www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
