A crash involving a pickup truck and an SUV left a 54-year-old Clayton woman trapped inside her vehicle in downtown Dover Wednesday morning.
The pickup truck driven by a 69-year-old Goldsboro, Md. man was traveling east on North Street around 10:49 a.m., when the driver allegedly failed to stop at a red light Wednesday morning, said Dan McKeown of the Dover Police Department. The truck struck the passenger-side door of an SUV traveling north on Queen Street. The SUV went into a spin and overturned.
Dover Police and Dover Fire Department personnel were called to the scene. Deputy Chief Matthew Carey of the Dover Fire Department arrived on scene and found the SUV lying upside down with the Clayton woman trapped inside. The truck sustained only front-end damage, McKeown said.
Dover Fire Engine No. 4 arrived on scene and stabilized the vehicle before beginning extraction with the help of engine No. 2, said Michael O'Connor of the Dover Fire Department.
Fire fighters removed the driver's side door and got the woman out and onto a spine board. She was transported to a local trauma unit. Her injuries were non-life threatening, Mckeown said.
"She is in the hospital being treated for back and neck injuries," he said.
Traffic was disrupted for about 30 minutes.
