Bear- Delaware State Police investigated a single vehicle crash which injured one person that occurred this morning.

The investigation has determined that the crash occurred at approximately 10:17 a.m. this morning, Wednesday, May 31, 2017, as Autumn L. Fisher, 23, of Dover, was operating a 2005 Honda Accord and was traveling in a northbound direction on SR1 approximately .5 miles north of US Rt. 40. For an unknown reason, Fisher lost control of her vehicle, which then veered to the left and exited the roadway. It then struck a guardrail and began spinning in a counterclockwise direction back onto the roadway. Fisher, who was not properly restrained at the time of the crash, was ejected from her vehicle through the passenger side window. She was then thrown to the ground and came to rest just east of the roadway.

Fisher was treated at the scene by New Castle County Paramedics. She was then transported by ambulance to the Christiana Medical Center where she was treated for her non-life threatening injuries. Fisher was cited by troopers for Failure to Maintain a Lane of Travel.

Northbound SR1 was closed for approximately one hour as the crash was investigated and cleared.
