LITTLE HEAVEN, Del.- Delaware State Police have released the name of a woman who died Monday morning in a two-car crash that occurred on SR1 in Kent County.

The victim was identified as 58-year-old Patricia M. Rolling, of Houston, Del.

Police said that just before 6 a.m. Monday, Rolling was operating a Kia Spectra northbound on SR1 just north of Mulberrie Point Road in Little Heaven when for unknown reasons, the Kia crossed the center median and began to rotate counter-clockwise before entering the southbound lanes.

Troopers said that a 36-year-old Dover man was operating a Hyundai Santa Fe southbound on SR1 in the same vicinity and was unable to avoid striking the Kia on the right front passenger's side. The Kia was pushed southbound after the impact and came to a stop on the right shoulder of the southbound lanes. The Santa Fe continued a short distance southbound and rotated counter-clockwise before coming to a stop, investigators said. 

Police said Rolling, who was properly restrained, was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where she was pronounced dead. 

The 36-year-old driver of the Santa Fe was properly restrained and transported to KGH where he was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police. 

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident. Alcohol and drugs are not contributing factors in this case, police said.

SR1 southbound, north of Mulberrie Point Road was closed for approximately two and half hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
