A car crash in Dover, Delaware left a young girl critically injured on Thursday night. Around 7:30 pm, the car accident occurred when a 39-year-old man from Ellendale, Delaware, who was driving under the influence of alcohol, slammed into a sedan that was stopped at a red light. The impact of the collision caused the sedan to hit a pickup truck. The woman driving the sedan sustained a head injury and received treatment at the Bayhealth Kent General Hospital while her 10-year-old daughter incurred serious injuries, needed to be transported to the Nemours Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children, and remains in critical condition. The driver of the pickup truck escaped the car crash without injuries.
When motorists engage in drunk driving or speeding, they may cause a serious car accident, which puts other drivers and their passengers at-risk for a range of personal injuries as well as potential fatalities. Negligent driving practices are a major contributing factor to many motor vehicle crashes. Survivors of this type of accident may face debilitating injuries, emotional and mental trauma, and mounting medical bills.
