Driver in Route 13 “S-Curve” Crash Has Died


Salisbury Police say the driver involved in a Tuesday morning crash on Business Route 13 near the famous “S-curve” in Salisbury has succumb to her injuries.

55-year-old Regina Tyrell Burnette of Princess Anne was the only occupant of the 2006 Cadillac when it flipped over around 7 a.m. on Tuesday near the railroad tracks. She was transported to the nearby-PRMC for treatment. She later died due to her injuries. An autopsy is set to be completed to determine if any underlying medical conditions led to the crash.

Crash reconstruction investigators determined Burnette was traveling northbound on Route 13 at the intersection of South Division Street. They say she failed to negotiate the hard left hand curve of the road and ultimately struck a curb and a telephone pole at the intersection, causing her vehicle to flip.

Route 13 remained shut down for a large portion of the day on Tuesday. The “S-curve” has reduced speeds and safety sticks due to the sharp bends in the road.

Salisbury PD asks anyone traveling on Route 13 near the intersection of S. Division Street (S-Curve) yesterday morning between the hours of 6:45 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. who may have witnessed the crash to contact Salisbury Police Department at (833) SBY-CITY.
