Crash involves nursing home van
One person taken to hospital for injuries
A woman was injured last week when two passenger vans collided east of Newark, causing one to overturn.
The crash happened just before 11 a.m. Oct. 11 at the intersection of Harmony Road and Ruthar Drive, according to Master Cpl. Michael Austin, a spokesman for Delaware State Police.
A 2011 Ford Econoline E-250 van from Millcroft Senior Living was heading north on Harmony Road as a 2006 Ford Econoline E-150 van was attempting to turn left from Harmony Road into the Harmony Hills neighborhood.
The driver of the E-150 turned “directly into the path” of the Millcroft van, Austin said. The force of the collision caused the E-150 to overturn.
A 51-year-old woman who was riding in the E-150 was taken to Christiana Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. First responders also evaluated two other passengers for injuries, a 70-yearold man in the Millcroft van and a 49-year-old man in the E-150.
The driver of the E-150, Michael Ronig, 45, of Chesapeake City, Md., was cited for failing to yield the right of way, Austin said.
