A man has been accused of driving under the influence when he ran a red light at an intersection, leaving five people hospitalized as a result of the crash.
Delaware State Police indicate that Michael Walker, 29, had been driving his 1998 Buick Century southbound on Canterbury Road, (also known as State Route 15) in Milford when he failed to stop at a red light. According to officials, Walker’s vehicle rammed into the passenger side of a 2008 Nissan Altima that was being driven by Danny Hudson, 45. Hudson, and two passengers, women aged 23 and 45, needed to be extracted from their vehicle by emergency crews.
Walker and his 34-year-old passenger were also injured and suffered what are being described as non-life-threatening injuries. The accident victims were all treated at Milford Memorial Hospital.
State Police officials say that the accident is still currently under investigation, but they believe that Walker ran the red light while intoxicated. Walker has been arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated, vehicular assault, failure to stop and additional charges related to the accident.
