FELTON, Del.- A Felton man has died from his injuries days after a serious crash in Kent County.

The accident happened the morning of Jan. 9 at a four-way stop at the intersection of Midstate and Canterbury roads.

According to Delaware State Police, a Ford F-250 traveling eastbound on Midstate Road reportedly failed to stop at the posted stop sign and struck the driver's side door of a Dodge Ram traveling northbound on Canterbury Road. 

The driver of the Dodge Ram, 80-year-old Vaughn Wooten, was properly restrained. He was transported to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital and later transported to Christiana Hospital. He died from injuries Jan. 13, police said.

Wooten's passenger, a 76-year-old woman from Felton, was not properly restrained and was ejected from the car. She was transported to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital and later transported to Christiana Hospital, where she remains in serious condition, according to police.

The driver of the F-250, a 50-year-old Clayton man, was properly restrained. He was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital, where he was released with no injuries, police said.

There is no word of any charges at this time.
