Michael W. Walker was driving a 1998 Buick Century southbound on Canterbury Road at about 2:45 a.m. when he failed to stop for a red light at the intersection of Milford-Harrington Highway, said Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Jeffrey Hale.
Walker hit the passenger side of a 2008 Nissan Altima, operated by 45-year-old Lincoln resident Danny R. Hudson, who was traveling eastbound on Milford Harrington Highway, Hale said.
Walker is charged with first-degree vehicular assault, three counts of second-degree vehicular assault, driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to stop at a red light. Arraignment information was not available, Hale said.
Walker was wearing a seatbelt and was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Hudson was wearing a seatbelt and also was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Hudson’s three passengers, a 34-year-old Greenwood man, a 23-year-old Millsboro woman and a 43-year-old Lewes woman, were wearing seatbelts and also were taken to Milford Memorial Hospital where they were treated for injuries.
