County Police Investigating Crash Into A Home

The New Castle County Division of Police are currently investigating a motor vehicle crash involving a pick-up truck into a home.

On Thursday (9/22), at approximately 9:40 a.m., Police were called to the 600 block of Cranhill Drive for the report of a vehicle into a home.

Officers arrived on scene and learned the 84-year-old operator of a silver 2004 pick-up truck was traveling on Millcreek Road toward McKennans Church Road when an unknown dark-colored sedan crossed over the double yellow lines. The driver of the pick-up truck then swerved to avoid a collision and traveled onto Cranhill Drive where he continued to travel through a yard and then struck a home.

The occupant of the residence, a 70-year-old man, was home at the time and uninjured. The driver of the pick-up received minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

The home has been deemed unsafe due to the crash and the vehicle has been towed from the scene.
