One woman has died after a fatal crash on South Dupont Highway near Webbs Lane, south of Dover, Oct. 22.

Three others were injured in the crash, and one is at Bayhealth Kent General Hospital in critical condition.

Officers responded to the scene at 9:55 p.m where they saw three vehicles involved.

Deborah Young, 67, was driving southbound on Dupont Highway when Wayne Briney, 27, tried to turn onto Webbs Lane from the northbound turn lane. Young’s car struck the passenger side of Briney’s car, sending both spinning, police said.

Young’s car ended up facing northbound in the southbound lanes, and Briney’s stopped on the west edge of the highway.

A Jeep driven by Michael Baize, 56, then struck Young’s vehicle while she was still in it. Her car crossed the southbound lanes, over the grass median and the northbound lanes to stop on the east side of the highway.

At that time, Shawn Shannon, 27, had walked onto the scene to help those in the accident and was hit by one of the cars, police said.

Deborah Young succumbed to her injuries at Bayhealth Kent General Hospital, police said.
