UPDATED – 5pm – The northbound lanes of Route 113 have been reopened to traffic.
Part of Route 113 remains closed after a serious crash just before 10:30 in the northbound lanes at Governor Stockley Road. Delaware State Police say a 21 year old Georgetown man driving a Nissan failed to yield the right of way as he crossed Route 113 and a box truck driven by a 51 year old Maryland man struck the Nissan and went into a utility pole.
The driver of the Nissan was flown to Beebe Healthcare with serious injuries. The driver of the box truck was taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Traffic is being diverted to East Piney Grove Road until Delmarva Power and Verizon complete work on the utility pole.
