Early Morning Crash Closes Market Street in Blades


Market Street in the area of 10th Street in Blades was closed for hours this morning as utility crews worked to replace a damaged utility pole.  Delaware State Police say around 3:15 this morning an SUV driven by 24 year old Christianna Griffin of Seaford drove off the side of the road hitting a road sign and the utility pole.  The SUV ended up on its roof.  Griffin and two passengers were able to get out on their own – a 25 year old man was treated for a minor injury.  Griffin and a 7 month old child were not injured. Police say impairment is not a factor – Griffin was charged with inattentive driving and driving suspended.
