Four teenagers were injured in a crash Tuesday afternoon in Wilmington, Delaware.

The accident occurred at approximately 4:00 p.m. Tuesday as a 17-year-old boy from Wilmington was driving a 2000 Ford Mustang and was traveling southbound on Montchanin Road just north of Smith's Bridge Road.

The driver of the Mustang lost control on the wet roadway and entered into the northbound lane of Montchanin Road, where it was struck on its front right side by a 2000 Ford E-150 van being driven by 19-year-old Alexander Marlow of Wilmington, DE.

The driver of the Mustang, a 15-year-old Claymont boy, and an 18-year-old Claymont man were all transported by EMS to the Christiana Hospital where they were treated for their injuries.

Another male was flown from the scene by state police helicopter where he was also treated for his injuries. None of the injuries were believed to be life threatening.

Marlow was not injured. The crash is still under investigation at this time and speed is considered a factor.
