CHRISTIANA, Del. -- Delaware State Police say a 24-year-old man who was injured in a crash in Christiana has died from his injuries.

State Police spokesman Cpl. Jeffrey Hale says Detrick Jones was pronounced dead Tuesday at Christiana Hospital Trauma Center.

Police say that on April 11, 50-year-old Scott Bartow was driving his Chevrolet Silverado on Del. 273 when he swerved to avoid a disabled vehicle in front of him. Bartow crossed the center median and drove into opposing traffic, where he hit a Nissan Altima driven by Jones.

The impact pushed the Altima into another vehicle.

Hale says Jones was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Bartow wasn't injured in the crash. Police arrested him on charges of driving under the influence, no proof of insurance, vehicular assauly and careless driving.
