ELLENDALE, Del.- Delaware State Police say a 9-year-old boy is in critical condition following a serious crash in Ellendale Saturday morning.

Police said that at around 9:25 a.m., 43-year-old Rigoberto Perez-Sanchez, of Bridgeville, was operating a 2015 Toyota Yaris and was stopped in the crossover at the intersection of CR 579 (E. Robbins Road) and US Rt. 113 (N. DuPont Boulevard).  Police say as Perez-Sanchez began to enter onto Rt. 113, he pulled directly into the path of a 1996 Chevrolet pick-up truck which was driven by a 25-year-old Georgetown woman. The front of the Chevrolet then struck the rear of the Toyota, which forced it off of the east edge of the road where it came to rest. The Chevrolet was able to stop safely on the northbound shoulder of DuPont Boulevard.

Rigoberto Perez-Sanchez, who police said was properly restrained at the time of the crash, was treated at the scene.  He was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released with minor injuries.

However, investigators said the 9-year-old son of Perez-Sanchez was not properly restrained when the crash happened.  The boy was treated at the scene by paramedics before being flown by to the A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children where he was admitted in critical condition. There were no other injuries.

The northbound lane of DuPont Boulevard was closed for approximately three hours as the crash was investigated.

This crash remains under investigation by police. Alcohol or drug use is not being considered as a factor in the crash.
