MILFORD, Del.- Two men are each facing their third-offense DUI charge after one of them crashed into the other south of Milford, according to police.

Milford police said the incident occurred shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday as Carlell Smith, 34 of Lincoln, was operating a Chrysler Town and Country minivan westbound on Benson Road and approaching a stop sign with Cedar Creek Road (SR30). 

Police said Smith failed to remain stopped at the stop sign and pulled into the intersection, striking a Chevrolet Astro Van driven by Michael J. Flood, 52, of Ocean View.

Both drivers were removed from the scene and transported to Bayhealth Milford Memorial Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. 

While there, a DUI investigation ensued with Smith. Police said he was charged with third-offense driving under the influence of alcohol (two previous: 05/19/2008 and 12/16/2015), first-degree vehicular assault, second-degree reckless endangering, driving while suspended or revoked, no proof of insurance, and failure to remain stopped at a stop sign.  He was arraigned at JP2 and committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $6,502 secured bond.

Police said a DUI investigation also ensued with Flood at the hospital and he was later charged with third-offense driving under the influence of alcohol (two previous:11/14/1991 and 12/02/2003).  He was arraigned at JP2 and released on $2,000 unsecured bond.
