Newark Crash Leaves 17-Year-Old Hospitalized

On the evening of February 12, 2024, emergency responders were called to a motor vehicle accident on Paper Mill Road near Wharton Drive in Newark, according to spokeswoman Leslie Antonelli-Hobbs.

The incident, which occurred at around 8:25 p.m., involved a single vehicle that rolled over, resulting in the entrapment of a 17-year-old female driver. New Castle County Paramedics, alongside the Aetna Hose Hook and Ladder Company, were dispatched to the scene following reports of the collision.

Upon arrival, first responders found the vehicle overturned and immediately initiated rescue operations to extricate the trapped driver. The operation took approximately 10 minutes, after which the driver was freed from the wreckage. She was then transported to Christiana Hospital in Stanton by New Castle County Paramedics, with an Aetna ambulance team onboard. The patient was reported to be in stable condition, suffering from extremity injuries and potential internal injuries.

The Delaware State Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident.
