On Wednesday afternoon, a rollover crash occurred involving three different cars and a tractor-trailer. Around 5 pm, a red car recklessly drove in the northbound lanes of Route 1 in Middletown, Delaware cutting off a Honda. The Honda then swerved to the right, first striking a Chevrolet, and then hitting a tractor-trailer, which jackknifed. During the mayhem, the Chevrolet struck a Mercury. The 21-year-old male from Aston, Pennsylvania, who was driving the Honda sustained personal injuries and was brought to the Christiana Hospital. Both the 17-year-old male driver of the Chevrolet who was from Newark, Delaware, and the 30-year-old woman from Bear, Delaware, who was driving the Mercury, were transported to the Middletown Hospital for treatment of their personal injuries. The tractor-trailer driver from Clayton, Delaware sustained no injuries in the Middletown rollover crash.
Multi-vehicle crashes like the Middletown rollover crash commonly occur during busy commute times when the roads are highly congested. One car may engage in a crash, which leads to a chain-reaction crash, causing other vehicles in the vicinity to collide or engage in other accidents. Oftentimes, a multi-vehicle crash involving several vehicles, including large trucks or buses, may lead to catastrophic injuries for its victims or even fatalities.
