A Laurel man is in critical condition following a serious crash near Georgetown.

According to the Delaware State Police Department, shortly before 11 p.m., Thursday a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt was traveling eastbound on Asbury Road, east of Davis Road, approaching a moderate left curve.

For unknown reasons, police say the driver failed to negotiate the curve and the car ran off the road. It then overturned several times before coming to a final rest in an open field.

The driver, and sole occupant, a 28-year-old Laurel man, was not properly restrained and was ejected from the vehicle. He was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and later transferred to the Christiana Hospital in critical condition.

The eastbound lane of Asbury Road was closed for approximately 2.5 hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

The crash continues to remain under investigation.
