LINCOLN – A 21-year-old Houston man was seriously injured after he crashed a car into a utility pole on Thursday night, according to Delaware State Police spokesperson Sgt. India Sturgis.

At around 8:10 p.m., a 2005 Honda Civic was reportedly traveling northbound on North Old State Road south of Haflinger Road at a high rate of speed.

The driver lost control of the vehicle and drove off the east edge of the roadway before the vehicle struck a Delmarva Power utility pole.

The driver was not wearing a seatbelt during the crash and was taken to an area hospital for life-threatening injuries.

An 18-year-old male passenger, also from Houston, was wearing a seatbelt during the crash. He was taken to an area hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The roadway was closed for around three hours while the collision was being investigated and cleared.

The Delaware State Police Troop 7 Collision Reconstruction Unit in Lewes continues investigating the crash.

Troopers are asking anyone with information regarding the collision to contact Senior Cpl. R. Albert at 302-703-3266. Information may also be provided by contacting Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333 or via the internet at www.delawarecrimestoppers.com.
