TOWNSEND (DE) BY DIGITAL STAFF: Delaware State Police have charged a man after he overtook a vehicle on a grassy shoulder along Route 1, and crashed into a Mumford & Miller construction vehicle early Monday morning.

Police say the operator, a 24-Year-old man, was operating a 2017 Hyundai Sonata just before 7:00 a.m. on Route 1 in the area of Blackbird Creek. Police say the operator was tailgating a vehicle in the left lane of Route 1 when he attempted to pass a 2020 Subaru on the left grass shoulder and struck the vehicle as he merged back onto the roadway.

The initial collision caused the Sonata to travel out of control until it struck a construction vehicle belonging to Mumford and Miller that was stationed in the grass median., police said.

Abigail Haas, a spokesperson for the New Castle County Paramedics say, “The man was treated on scene for a head injury and possible internal injuries, before he was transported to the Christiana Hospital, in Stanton, in serious condition, aboard an ambulance from the Townsend Fire Company, with Paramedics accompanying.”

Police cited the operator of the Sonata for overtaking a vehicle on the left.
