MAGNOLIA — A 6-year-old Maryland girl died from injuries suffered in a crash around 8:39 p.m. Saturday on Del. 1 just south of Trap Shooters Lane, Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier said.
The girl, from Waldorf, was riding in a 2014 BMW SW that was struck by a 2005 Chrysler Sebring driven by a 24-year-old Millsboro female, police said. The Sebring came to an uncontrolled stop in the grass median, while the BMW exited the roadway and overturned onto its roof before coming to a stop in the tree line, police said.
The southbound Sebring driver had veered to the left and exited the roadway after an unknown passenger vehicle in front of it briefly crossed the center line prior to the crash, police said. The Sebring exited the roadway and re-entered on the northbound side, where the collision with the BMW occurred, police said.
Following transport by EMS to Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus, the girl was pronounced dead, police said.
The driver of the Sebring was transported to Christiana Medical Center, where she was admitted for undetermined injuries, police said.
The 26-year-old male driver of the BMW was taken to CMC, where he was admitted for undetermined injuries.
There were four other passengers in the BMW (excluding the fatal victim) all from Waldorf. Two 30-year-old females were taken to Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus and admitted with undetermined injuries. A 12-year-old male was transported to the hospital, where he was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries. An 11-month-old female was transported to A.I. duPont, where she was admitted with undetermined injuries.
The non-contact passenger vehicle continued southbound on Bay Road. No description of the vehicle was given.
Del. 1 northbound traffic was closed for approximately five hours while the collision was investigated and cleared.
