Lewes, DE – Troopers are currently investigating a crash in which five people were transported to a local hospital.
The incident occurred at approximately 3:15 p.m. today as Rosa Maria Cruz Molina, 39 of Rehoboth, was operating a 1994 Buick Regal eastbound on Renee Drive before entering into a sharp corner onto Mary Ann Road in the development of Whispering Pines. The Buick slowed to a stop at the corner of Mary Ann Road before it suddenly accelerated and drove off the west side of the road and in the direction of Victoria Graver, 22 of Reading, PA, and three young children who were in the front yard between 31869 Renee Drive and 17689 Mary Ann Road. Graver attempted to shield her 3-year-old daughter by jumping on top of her, as they were both run over by the car. A 4-week-old son of Graver, who was strapped into a car carrier, was just outside of her 2009 Ford Focus on the ground as the car continued forward striking the infant and a one and a half year old boy who was also standing near the Ford prior to the Buick striking the car.
After the collision, Molina exited her vehicle and momentarily stayed at the scene before walking away. She was picked up by responding troopers at the corner of Arlene Road and Holly Drive shortly thereafter.
Victoria Graver, along with her two children and her nephew were all transported to Beebe Medical Center where they were treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.
Rosa Maria Cruz Molina was also transported to Beebe Medical Center where she is currently under observation with non-life-threatening injuries.
