34-year-old woman dies after driving in front of container truck near Georgetown

A 34-year-old woman was killed in a two-car crash that injured two others near Georgetown on Thursday morning, according to Delaware State Police.

The woman's name has not yet been released.

The 34-year-old woman from Georgetown was driving south on Bull Pine Road in a 2008 Honda Civic, state police said. When she reached the intersection with Shortly Road at 7:40 a.m., police said, the woman failed to stop at the stop sign for "reasons under investigation."

The Honda entered the intersection directly in the path of a 2020 Volvo VHD roll-off container truck that was heading west on Shortly Road, which is a throughway, police said. The front of the Volvo hit the left side of the Honda, according to police, and then overrode the sedan before overturning off the side of the road.

The Honda spun into the eastbound lane of Shortly Road, where it came to a stop, police said.

The 34-year-old driver of the Honda was pronounced dead at the scene. A 29-year-old woman from Georgetown in the front seat of the Honda was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition.

A 59-year-old Millsboro man who was driving the Volvo was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police said the area was closed for over six hours, and the crash is still under investigation.
