Man Charged With DUI After Crash Released On Unsecured Bond, Four To Hospital

Newark – The Delaware State Police have charged 47-year-old Zun Kebei, of New Castle, with multiple counts of vehicular assault and DUI, as a result of a motor vehicle crash that occurred Friday night, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Michael Austin.

Austin said the incident occurred at approximately 9:52 p.m., Friday, April 5, 2019, at the intersection of Limestone Road (DE Rt. 7) and Paper Mill Rd. (DE Rt. 72), in Newark. A 2017 Cadillac being driven by a 55-year-old Marlton NJ woman, was traveling southbound on Limestone Road, proceeding through the intersection with Paper Mill Road, with a green light. A 2003 Toyota Camry being driven by Kebei was traveling on Paper Mill Road and proceeded into the intersection with Limestone Road, against a red light, striking the right side of the Cadillac, said Austin. Both vehicles came to rest in the intersection after the collision.

Upon arriving on scene, EMS personnel located Kebei’s 7-month-old child in the vehicle, not in a car seat. The child was transported to A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children with non-life threatening injuries. The investigation determined that the child was not restrained at the time of the collision, according to Austin. The investigation also determined that Kebei, who was not injured, was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision, said Austin.
