Resume:

Milford, DE- The Delaware State Police are investigating a four car crash that occurred on SR1 north of Milford this morning.

 

Troopers responded to the scene around 10:41 a.m. after a chain reaction crash occurred on SR1 southbound in the area of the US113 split, north of Milford.  The crash occurred when Clarence Cartwright, who was operating a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage southbound in the left lane of SR1 made a lane change into the right lane in an attempt to make the exit into Milford.  Traffic was stopped on SR1 southbound due to a crash being investigated by Milford P.D. on SR1 in the area of 10th Street.  Cartwright failed to stop in time and struck the rear of a 2010 Lexus ES250 being operated by Jaime M. Soliven, which in turn pushed his car forward into a 2010 Nissan Titan, operated by James Bruton.  The Nissan then struck the rear of a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu, driven by Laura L. Nichols.  All four vehicles remained in the right lane of travel causing that lane to be shut down for approximately an hour and a half as the crash was investigated and cleared.

 

Jaime M. Soliven, and his two passengers that were all properly restrained, were transported to Milford Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  There were no injuries to the operators of the other vehicles.

 

Cartwright was cited for Inattentive Driving and No Proof of Insurance.
