Laurel Baseball Coach Seriously Injured in Crash

BLADES, Del.- Delaware State Police say a Laurel man sustained serious injuries after the car he was driving struck a tractor-trailer that was backing into a driveway near Blades late Tuesday night.
Troopers said the accident occurred at around 10:14 p.m., as 59-year-old Howard J. West of Seaford was attempting to back his Freightliner tractor-trailer into a private driveway off of Bethel Concord Road, located approximately one mile east of U.S. Route 13.  
Police said 31-year-old Marc D. Morgan of Laurel was driving a Ford Taurus eastbound on Bethel Concord Road when he failed to see the flatbed trailer that was perpendicular in the road. Police said the Taurus then went under the trailer, leaving Morgan pinned inside the car.
Morgan, who police said was properly restrained, was removed from his car by EMS and initially transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital before being flown to Christiana Hospital due to his injuries.
West was properly restrained and not injured in the crash, according to police.
Bethel Concord Road was closed for approximately four hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
