UPDATED: A 6 year old is dead after a 3 vehicle crash west of Millsboro Sunday morning.

The van rotated into the front of a pickup that was stopped at the stop sign on Bald Branch Road. Police say all the drivers were properly restrained. A 6 year old passenger in the back of the Cherokee was properly restrained but was pronounced dead at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital. Two of the drivers were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
