An accident on Route 13 in Bridgeville left five people injured late yesterday afternoon.

Delaware State Police say the three-vehicle crash occurred around 5:45 p.m. near the Heritage Shores development.

WBOC reports that 65 year old James Wright’s Jeep Wrangler drove in the wrong direction going eastbound in the westbound lanes on Heritage Drive.

His jeep struck a Volkswagen approaching the entrance to Heritage Drive when he pulled into the northbound lanes on Route 13.

His vehicle then struck a Chevy work truck almost head on.

The 17 year old girl along with her two passengers in the Volkswagen and 75 year old Norman Saurette who drove the truck were taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and released with non-life threatening injuries.

Wright also arrived at the hospital with serious injuries.

Authorities say alcohol appears to have been a factor in the accident.
