SMYRNA, Del. -- Delaware State Troopers say they arrested a New Jersey man for a DUI after he crashed his vehicle into an embankment east of Smyrna on Saturday.

Police say the crash happened approximately at 6:05 am. when Leroy Wooster, 28, of New Jersey was driving his 2014 Dodge Dart northbound on the Korean War Veterans Memorial Highway in the area of Black Diamond Road, when he attempted to change lanes from the left lane to the right lane. Police report Wooster then lost control of the vehicle, traveling into a ditch where he struck an embankment, going over the embankment, where the car rolled multiple times and ended upright facing Service Road 1.

Police say the driver was not wearing a seatbelt; he was treated by paramedics and transported by the Delaware State Police Aviation Unit to the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported.

Wooster was cited and later released, police report, after being charged with driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, failure to have insurance identification in possession, and careless driving. 

Service Road 1 northbound near Black Diamond Road in the area of the crash was impacted for 20 minutes before being reopened.
