HARRINGTON, Del. -  The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is currently investigating a two vehicle crash that happened Tuesday afternoon west of Harrington.

Police say the accident occurred around 4:35 p.m. Tuesday August 30, 2016 as Adam L. Fox, 53 of Frederica was driving a 2014 Volkswagen Passat southbound on Fox Hunters Road and was stopped at the stop sign at the intersection with Whiteleysburg Road.  Police say Brian J. Ennis, 23 of Lincoln, was driving a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe eastbound on Whiteleysburg Road approaching the intersection with Fox Hunters Road when the Passat pulled into the intersection.  The Tahoe struck the front end of the Passat and began to rotate in a counter-clockwise manner before traveling off the south side of the road where the rear of the Tahoe struck a utility pole.  The SUV then overturned, ejecting Ennis from the vehicle.  The Passat rotated in a counter-clockwise manner and came to a stop in the roadway.

Police say Brian Ennis was not wearing his seat belt and was taken to Christiana Medical Center where he was admitted in critical condition.  Adam Fox was properly restrained and sustained non-life-threatening injuries.  He was treated on the scene by EMS.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident. No charges have been filed at this time.  Whiteleysburg Road at Fox Hunters Road was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
