A Seaford woman has died following a multi-vehicle crash that injured several people on Route 9.

According to the Delaware State Police Department, the crash occurred around 3:30 p.m., Monday as a 2017 Fiat Coupe was traveling eastbound on County Seat Highway (Route 9), stopped at the intersection of Asbury Road about to turn left.

A 2014 Ford Mustang was traveling eastbound on County Seat Highway approaching the Fiat. A 2009 Ford Econoline van was traveling westbound on County Seat Highway approaching the intersection of Asbury Road.

For unknown reasons, the driver of the Mustang did not see that the Fiat was stopped and struck the rear of the Fiat, pushing it into the westbound lane directly into the path of the van.

The van then struck the rear of the Fiat causing it to overturn onto its roof, according to police.

The driver of the Fiat, a 48-year-old Seaford woman, was properly restrained and pronounced deceased at the scene. Her name is being withheld at this time pending the notification of next of kin.
