SUV overturns, hits pole in Wilmington crash

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

A two-vehicle accident in Wilmington sent a man and a woman to the hospital.

The crash happened around 8:00 a.m. at the intersection of Lancaster Avenue and Union Street.

Police say a Mercury Mountaineer was traveling eastbound on Lancaster Avenue when the driver disregarded a red light.

A Buick Roadmaster, traveling southbound on Union Street and travelling through the green light, was struck by the Mercury.

The force of the collision caused the Mountaineer to overturn and strike a utility pole and a traffic signal.

Both drivers were transported to Christiana Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the Mercury is charged with driving without a valid license, failure to stop at a red light, and failure to have insurance identification in possession.
