Delaware State Police Investigating Fatal Crash In Dover

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - Two women were flown from the scene of a crash just West of Dover, early Monday morning.

Delaware State Police say around 4:10 AM, 30-year-old Lindsay Stevens, of Dover was driving a 2006 Mazda MPV van on Hazlettville Road, when she apparently turned counter-clockwise, then slid 140 feet through the grass, before overturning several times, and stopping on the edge of a retention pond.

Stevens and her passenger, 37-year-old Kimberly Proud, of Camden-Wyoming, were both ejected from the vehicle, before ending up in the pond. Police say neither were wearing seat belts.

Both women were flown to Christian Medical Center, where Proud was later pronounced dead. Stevens is currently listed there in stable condition.

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is still investigating the crash, but says alcohol and speed may have been a factor in the incident. Hazlettville Road between Nault Road and Quail Run was closed for around three hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
