Ac­cord­ing to Sgt. Todd Red­path, the crash oc­curred when the the driver of a pickup at­tempted to cross over Route 301.

The driver of a 2017 black, Chevro­let Sil­ver­ado, Wil­liam R. Marsh, 40, of Wilm­ing­ton, Del., failed to yield the right of way at the in­ter­sec­tion, pulling into the path of a south­bound 2017 Honda Ac­cord driven by Ke­tan R. Pa­tel, 31, of Eas­ton, po­lice said.

The Honda struck the pas­sen­ger side door of the truck. Po­lice re­ports in­di­cate Pa­tel was trav­el­ing at a nor­mal rate of speed when con­tact was made. Red­path said the Honda was to­taled.

Af­ter be­ing hit, the truck then struck the guardrail on Route 301 south. Both ve­hi­cles were dis­abled.

There were four pas­sen­gers in the truck: Tif­fany N. Walls, 36, Jayde N. Walls, 14, and Tay­lor W. Walls, 10, all of Kennedyville, and Tyler R. Marsh, 18, of Dun­dalk.
