BEAR, Del. (CBS)
– One person was killed following a wrong-way crash on Route 1 in Bear, Dealaware.

Officials say, just before 1:30 a.m. Friday, a Kia Niro was traveling southbound on the northbound lanes of Route 1 and collided with a tractor-trailer head-on, just south of U.S. 40.

Delaware State Police say the impact sent the vehicle flying into the air. The car then landed on a guardrail. Police say the 29-year-old driver was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the tractor-trailer was not injured.

Route 1 was closed in both directions for almost six hours. The road has since reopened.

The crash remains under investigation.
