A 20-year-old woman from Woodbridge, Virginia has died following a car crash in Milton Saturday morning, Delaware State Police reported.
Two other people in the car with her — a 19-year-old woman also from Woodbridge and a 28-year-old man from Hyattsville, Maryland — were injured and taken to the hospital.
State police said 20-year-old Jennifer Urias Tacuri was driving east on Milton Ellendale Highway toward the Mulberry Street intersection in a silver 2014 Toyota Corolla at 7:04 a.m. At the same time, police said a 24-year-old man from Lewes was approaching the intersection from the opposite direction in a gray 2016 Chevrolet Colorado truck.
The Colorado began to turn left onto Mulberry Street, according to police, putting it in the Corolla’s path. The front left of the truck hit the sedan’s left side, sending both cars spinning counterclockwise, according to police. The Corolla ended up in the grass off the south edge of Milton Ellendale Highway and the Colorado stopped in the eastbound lane.
Urias Tacuri, the 19-year-old sitting behind her and the 28-year-old passenger in the front seat were all taken to the hospital, police said. The driver, whose identity has not yet been released, later died at the hospital. The other two are not in critical condition, police said.
The 24-year-old driver of the Colorado and the 20-year-old man from Woodbridge sitting in the back right seat of the Corolla were not injured, according to police. Everyone in both cars was wearing a seatbelt.
Police said the road was closed for over three hours while the scene was cleared and investigated. Anyone who saw the crash is asked to contact Sgt. J. Burns at 302-703-3269 or call Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
