Car Drives Through House In Felton Delaware

Posted: Updated:

FELTON, Del. - Delaware State Police is investigating a crash where a car drove into a home.

The incident occurred Saturday morning around 11:11 AM when Carlot Stinvil was driving a 1997 Nissan Maxima on South DuPont Highway (US13).

The Nissan first exited the roadway at 7571 South DuPont Highway, striking a mailbox before driving into a ditch.  It then continued across two private driveways before crashing through a wooden fence post located at 7517 South DuPont Highway.  The Maxima continued across the front lawn, striking the corner of the deck at that residence.

As the car continued through the yard, it struck a dirt berm which sent the car flying through the air, and it then drove across the back of a 1995 Lexis parked in the driveway.

The Nissan finally came to a stop after it crashed into a house on the 7000 block of South DuPont Highway.

At the time of the crash, the house was occupied by three adults.  A 55 year old female was transported to Kent General Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  A male and female adult were uninjured.

Carlot Stinvil was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to KGH with non-life-threatening injuries.  He was cited by Troopers for Inattentive Driving, Driving Without a Valid License, and No Proof of Insurance.

Kent County Code Enforcement inspected the residence and condemned it due to the structural damage.

US13 northbound was closed at Barney Jenkins Road for approximately an hour and a half as the crash was investigated and cleared.
