By Steve Beck
NEWPORT, Del. (CBS) – One person was killed and a toddler was injured in a crash in Delaware Monday afternoon.
The accident happened at about 12:30 p.m. on the off-ramp for Route 141 from I-95 southbound in Newport.
Officials say the 1996 Honda Accord was traveling south in the right land of I-95 when, instead of following the lane onto the off-ramp, it continued straight, leaving the road and coming to rest in a wooded ditch.
Twenty-nine-year-old Kristy M. Long, of Wilmington, was killed in the crash. She was properly restrained.
Long’s daughter, 1-year-old Aubrey Carter, was taken to Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, where she was treated and released.
Officials later determined that Long died from a “spontaneous brain bleed.”
The ramp was closed for about two hours while police investigated the deadly crash.
