Dagsboro- The Delaware State Police are investigating a serious crash that occurred earlier today, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Melissa Jaffe.

Jaffe said the incident occurred on Sunday, November 11, 2018, at approximately 1:01 p.m. when a 2011 Hyundai Veracruz, was traveling south in the left lane of southbound DuPont Boulevard (US 113) north of Nine Foot Road (SR 26). A 2015 Volkswagen Golf, was traveling north in the left lane of northbound DuPont Boulevard approaching the same general area as the Hyundai.
