Saturday, September 17, 2011

Delaware State Police say a 43-year-old Middletown woman has been seriously injured after being involved in a three-car collision Friday in St. Georges.

Authorities say Crystal D. Lenear was taken to Christiana Hospital after the accident on U.S. Route 13.

Police say Lenear lost control of her vehicle, which traveled across the grass median and struck head-on a car operated by 44-year-old Suzanne Shelton of Smyrna. Shelton's vehicle then was struck from behind by a Ford Mustang driven by 59-year-old Marika A. Feldcamp of Townsend.

Shelton also was taken to Christiana Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. Feldcamp was not injured.

The southbound lanes of U.S. Route 13 was closed for about 2.5 hours while the crash was being investigated and cleared.
