UPDATE: One dead after serious crash in Seaford

Delaware State Police say one woman has died after a serious crash on Sussex Highway on the north end of Seaford, near Cannon Road.

The incident reportedly happened around 12:20 PM on Wednesday. Officials say Holly Boyce, 28, of Greenwood was operating a Buick sedan headed south on Route 13 following close behind a tractor trailer.

Troopers say the truck began to slow, preparing to turn right into the lot of an approaching business, when Boyce failed to slow along with it, rear-ending the trailer.

The police report says the Buick significantly under-rode the trailer striking the ICC bar on the truck, and Boyce, who was properly restrained, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Route 13 was closed for more than three hours while troopers investigated.
