  • A woman sitting in a window seat at the Milford Senior Center was injured Tuesday when a car involved in a nearby crash careened into the building, police said Thursday.
    Cheryl A. Flowers, a 39-year-old resident of the Camden-Wyoming area and a nurse with Bayhealth Medical Center, reportedly was preparing to teach a class at the senior center when the car struck the building on Park Avenue. The impact occurred close to where Flowers was sitting and knocked her across the classroom, police said.
    Flowers was initially taken to Milford Memorial Hospital, but was later flown to Christiana Hospital, police said.
    No information about her condition was available Thursday.
    Lt. Edward Huey of the Milford Police Department sid the 1992 Cadillac Deville struck the senior center as a result of a crash moments earlier at the intersection of North Washington and Northeast Front streets.
    Huey said the driver of the Cadillac, 58-year-old Milford resident Arnold K. Harmon, was heading east on Northeast Front Street when he ran a red light at the intersection with North Washington Street.
    The Cadillac was then struck by 2008 Nissan Titan pickup truck heading north on North Washington, sending the car into the Milford Senior Center building.
    Harmon and two of his passengers, a 21-year-old woman and a 10-year-old boy, were treated at Milford Memorial Hospital and later released, Huey said.
    The driver of the pick-up truck, 43-year-old Milford resident Michelle M. Bee, was not injured, he said.
    Harmon was later cited for disregarding a red light.
    The senior center incurred extensive window and framework damage, but no structural damage, Huey said.
