CAM­DEN, DEL. — A Ch­ester woman died in a head-on crash Sun­day af­ter­noon west of Cam­den, Del., when a car crossed into her lane for un­known rea­sons, ac­cord­ing to Delaware State Po­lice.

Nathaniel J. Plass, 62 of Fel­ton, Del., was driv­ing a 2014 sil­ver Toy­ota Corolla west on Wil­low Grove Road just west of Farm Lane about 1:28 p.m. on April 17. Kas­sia J. Pul­ley, 41, of Ch­ester, was driv­ing a 2011 Honda Ac­cord east, ap­proach­ing the Corolla. The Toy­ota crossed over into the east­bound lane and struck the Honda nearly head-on caus­ing both cars to spin, po­lice said. The Toy­ota con­tin­ued west and came to a stop fac­ing in north­west in the cen­ter of the road; the Honda con­tin­ued east, trav­el­ing off the south side of the road into a ditch be­fore com­ing to a stop fac­ing west, po­lice said.

Po­lice said Pul­ley was wear­ing a seat­belt, but she sus­tained mul­ti­ple trau­matic in­juries and was pro­nounced dead at the scene.

A pas­sen­ger in the Honda, Am­brose D. Robin­son, 39, also of Ch­ester, was not wear­ing a seat­belt, po­lice said. He was taken to Bay­health Kent Gen­eral Hospi­tal with what po­lice called non-life-threat­en­ing in­juries.

Plass was wear­ing a seat­belt, po­lice said. He was air­lifted by State Po­lice Avi­a­tion (Trooper 2) to Chris­tiana Med­i­cal Cen­ter. Po­lice said his in­juries were non-life-threat­en­ing.

The Delaware State Po­lice Col­li­sion Re­con­struc­tion Unit is con­tin­u­ing its in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Po­lice said they do not be­lieve speed or al­co­hol were in­volved.
