Crash at Gloucester Blvd. - Town of Middletown, Delaware

Crash at Gloucester Blvd.

Date: February 13, 2013

   On Feb. 7, at about 5 p.m., the Middletown Police were called to a property damage crash on westbound Del. 299, east of Gloucester Blvd. This was the third crash in this area within a three-hour period.

   The investigation revealed that a 2007 Honda, driven by a 31-year-old Middletown resident and a 2012 Toyota, driven by a 36-year-old, also from Middletown, were both westbound on Del. 299 approaching the Gloucester Blvd intersection. Traffic was stop-and-go because of the heavy rush hour volume of traffic. The Toyota came to a stop and the Honda struck it the rear causing very minor damage to both vehicles.

   The driver of the Honda was issued a citation for following too closely.

   Both vehicles were driven from the scene.  No one was injured.  Traffic continued to move freely as the involved vehicles were moved to the shoulder.
