Sussex councilman moved to Philadelphia hospital

WILMINGTON, Del. - November 15, 2011

Vance Phillips was discharged from the University of Virginia Medical Center on Nov. 11 and transferred to Jefferson Health System's Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. He is expected to stay there for a few weeks undergoing physical therapy.

Phillips suffered a fracture to his spine in the Oct. 30 crash. Police say his three-wheeled North Wing "trike," which is similar to a hang glider, landed too fast and at a steep angle.

The 49-year-old from Laurel, Del., has been a councilman for 13 years.
