(April 26, 2019) Two people were seriously injured in a crash that shut down a portion of Route 113 in Berlin Saturday morning, state police said.
Delaware residents William Odell Frazier, 71, and Mae B. Frazier, 79, were taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury following the crash.
Several agencies including the state police, Worcester County Sheriff’s Office, State Highway Administration, and Berlin Emergency Medical Services responded to the single-vehicle wreck around 11:21 a.m. near the intersection of Route 113 and Goody Hill Road.
A 2003 Cadillac Deville was reportedly seen swerving numerous times through lanes, according to a police investigation. The Cadillac then reportedly swerved from the first lane, rotated into the second lane and collided with the guardrail in the left shoulder of the highway.
William, the driver, sustained life-threatening injuries, and Mae, the front seat passenger, suffered serious injuries, according to police.
The road was blocked for about one hour, police said.
The circumstances leading up to the crash are unclear and remain under investigation, police said.
