One injured in crash


A Tuesday afternoon crash resulted in a young woman being transported to Clinton Memorial Hospital. Wilmington Police Officer Jerry Popp told the News Journal on scene that a male driving a black truck northbound on Nelson Avenue approached the intersection of Nelson Avenue and U.S. 22 and State Route 3, stopped at the stop sign, then continued into the intersection. Popp said at that time a blue car driving westbound on 22 and 3 T-boned the truck, lost control and ended up behind a line of trees at the bottom of an incline on the north side of the intersection. Popp said the blue car was carrying two males and the female who was transported. As of press time, Popp said the female was in stable condition. Popp said all involved were juveniles. According to Popp, although the driver of the black truck stopped at the stop sign, he will be cited for a stop sign violation. Popp said a stipulation in the law states that even if a driver stops at a stop sign, if they proceed without due caution they will be cited.
