DEWEY BEACH, Del.- The Delaware State Police are currently investigating a crash involving a Jolly Trolley south of Dewey Beach.

Police say the crash occurred around 4:41 p.m. when a 76-year-old Lewes man was operating a 2005 Ford Econo van, pulling the Jolly Trolley with approximately 22 passengers on board, who were wedding guests. For an undetermined reason, police say the trailer started to sway and then overturned in the southbound lanes on Route 1. The van immediately stopped and bystanders in the area began assisting, pulling passengers from the trolley. At least 12 people were transported by Sussex County EMS to nearby hospitals where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries. The operator of that van was uninjured.

No citations were issued; the cause of the crash remains under investigation. Route 1 northbound and southbound was closed, but has since been reopened due to that crash.

Further details will be reported upon the updates from the investigation.

Exelon, the dam's owner, expects to open more gates as water levels peak on Thursday.
