At approximately 8:00 AM on August 6, 2019, Lewes FD was alerted to a motor vehicle accident with entrapment near the intersection of Lewes-Georgetown Highway and Josephs Rd. Upon arrival, units found two vehicles involved, a van and a box-type delivery truck. The driver of the box-truck was out and walking around, but the driver of the van was heavy pinned in his vehicle, and was suffering severe injuries.

He was transported to Beebe by ground with severe injuries.
