Reports: One Airlifter After Being Struck By Own Vehicle On Roth Bridge

Just after 7:45, Monday morning rescue crews from the Delaware City and Odessa Fire Companies along with New Castle County Paramedics and Delaware State Police Aviation’s Trooper 4 responded to Route 1 atop the Roth Bridge for reports of a rollover crash.

First arriving found at least three vehicles involved in a motor vehicle crash with one overturned. Command reported a total of three patients being evaluated at the scene.

Initial reports from the scene indicate that the driver of one of the vehicles was struck by their own vehicle. That driver reportedly was outside of their vehicle when another vehicle struck the vehicle causing it to slam into the patient. This patient was transported to Christiana Hospital by air.

At least one other patient was transported by ground with minor injuries.

The southbound lanes of Route 1 were closed shortly after the arrival of the first responders.
