A car crash Sunday led to more than driving-related charges for a 24-year-old man.
At about 9 a.m. police were called to the corner of Lewes Boulevard and Hospital Road for a single vehicle crash.
“The driver of a 2012 Dodge Ram pickup truck lost control of his truck while travelling towards town. The truck hit a couple of curbs and struck a large billboard sign before coming to a stop in a nearby parking lot,” police said in a press release.
Few details are being released, but the man is now facing eight charges, including possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, obstructing a police officer, possession of drugs and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
On top of that, he is facing several charges under the Motor Vehicle Act: operating a vehicle without a driver’s licence, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, exceeding the posted speed limit and driving carelessly.
He was also issued a 24-hour roadside suspension.
His name is not being released because the charges have not yet been sworn in court.
