Police: Head-on collision leaves 1 dead on Delaware road
NEWARK, Del. (AP) — A Delaware man died after police say his car drifted into another lane that was carrying traffic in the opposite direction, leading to a head-on collision.
Delaware State Police said Sunday that 41-year-old Lamar R. Elam of Wilmington died in the emergency room of Christiana Hospital following the Saturday evening crash in Newark.
A police news release says Elam’s northbound Infiniti collided with a Jeep traveling southbound. The Jeep’s driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
