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.
