The incident occurred at approximately 4:30 p.m. today, Wednesday October 15, 2014, as 17-year-old Noah L. Rose of Georgetown, was operating a 2002 Chrysler Sebring and had come to a complete stop in the center cross-over on DuPont Boulevard (US113) preparing to travel west on Alms House Road. Nicholas E. May, 35 of Winnsboro, Texas was operating a 1993 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck southbound on US113 in the left lane approaching the intersection with Alms House Road. A full size Ford van, traveling in front of the pick-up truck, had just pulled into the left turn lane at the cross-over where Noah Rose was stopped. At the same time, Rose began to proceed across the southbound lanes of US113 and was struck on the passenger's side by the front of the Chevy pick-up.
Noah Rose, who was properly restrained, was removed from the scene by Delaware State Police Aviation (Trooper 2) and initially flown to Beebe Medical Center before being transported by ambulance to Christiana Hospital Trauma Center where he is currently admitted in critical condition.
Nicholas May was also properly restrained and was transported by EMS to Beebe Hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. His treatment status and disposition is unknown.
The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit (CRU) is continuing their investigation into this incident. US113 southbound at Alms House Road was closed for approximately two hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
