Three Taken to Hospital Following Motor Vehicle Accident on Ferry

NORTH CAPE MAY – A two-vehicle accident occurred on the MV Delaware as vehicles were disembarking the ferry vessel at the Cape May terminal Aug. 22 at approximately 9:40 a.m.

Three people involved in the accident were transported to Cape Regional Medical Center for evaluation with what appeared to be minor injuries.

The preliminary investigation indicates that Jeffery Singley of Fort Washington, Md., was operating a white 2012 Ford Explorer rental vehicle thatcar accident on ferry was stationed on the port side of the ferry vessel. While maneuvering his vehicle on-board the vessel, Singley accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brakes, propelling the Explorer across the car deck and broadsiding a silver Honda Civic on the starboard side of the vessel. The subsequent impact pinned the Honda Civic against the ferry vessel’s starboard bulkhead.

The occupants of the 2013 Honda Civic, Diane Manville and Roger Level of Millsboro, Del., and Singley were transported to Cape Regional Medical Center by Lower Township EMS.

The vehicles were aboard the MV Delaware, which departed the Lewes Ferry Terminal at 8:15 a.m. Aug. 22. The MV Delaware sustained minor cosmetic damage. The ferry schedule was delayed for approximately one hour. The MV Cape Henlopen took over for the MV Delaware while the accident scene was cleared and cleaned up and departures will be delayed by one hour until late this afternoon.

The following units responded to the accident scene: Town Bank Fire Department, Villas Fire Department, Lower Township Police, Lower Township EMS, Villas Fire Department, and Delaware River and Bay Authority Police.

The accident remains under investigation by the Delaware River and Bay Authority police department.



Initial scanner reports indicated a motor vehicle accident occurred on board a ferry in North Cape May Aug. 22 around 9:54 a.m.

Lower Township Police dispatched Lower Township firefighters from various companies to the ferry terminal to assist with the crash. Apparently, one vehicle pinned another vehicle to the bulkhead (wall).

Three people have been taken to the hospital to be evaluated, according to DRBA officials.

DRBA officers were in command and no LTPD police were needed on scene.

Man dies in North Albany crash

Brooklyn car accident

A Eugene man died and a Corvallis man has been charged with manslaughter and DUII after a head-on crash just before 7 a.m. Thursday on Highway 20, near Scenic Drive in North Albany.

Gabriel Ruiz Lopez, 37, of Eugene, was reportedly driving west on Highway 20 in a 1993 Ford Escort Wagon when he hit head-on with a 1995 Acura Integra driven by Damon Selves, 32, of Corvallis, heading east. Lopez was extracted from his vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Selves was taken to Good Samaritan Regional Hospital in Corvallis with minor injuries. Selves was arrested and charged with manslaughter, driving under the influence of intoxicants (drugs) and reckless driving, according to the Benton County Sheriff’s Office.

Witnesses told deputies on scene that Selves “traveled into the westbound lane and tried to turn back into his lane,” according to a BCSO release. Lopez tried to avoid Selves, according to witness statements, but the vehicles collided head on and came to a rest in the middle of Highway 20.

“Damon Selves was not wearing a safety belt and airbags were deployed in the Acura Integra,” Sheriff’s deputies wrote in the release. “Gabriel Ruiz Lopez was wearing a safety belt and the Ford Escort was not equipped with airbags.”

The Benton County Multi-Agency Collision Investigation Team was activated and investigated the scene. Firefighters and EMTs with the Albany Fire Department and the Oregon Department of Transportation assisted at the scene. Highway 20 was closed for about 2.5 hours Thursday morning.

The Thursday crash occurred four months after Corvallis resident Boyd Turner, 48, died following a two-car crash on April 26 on Highway 20 between Rainwater Lane and Scenic Drive. Nearby residents and those who witnessed the April accident said that cars frequently travel much faster than the 45 mph speed limit posted in the area. Investigators of the April crash said that speed was not believed to be a factor.

Deadly crash closes State Road 417 toll-booth cash lanes

6:08 p.m. EDT, August 21, 2014

A Kissimmee man was killed in a crash on State Road 417 early Thursday when he plowed into a toll-booth barrier, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Dylan D. Smith was northbound on SR 417 when he drove his Ford Mustang into a divider at the Lee Vista Boulevard toll plaza.

Smith, 22, died at the scene of the crash, which prompted troopers to close the cash lanes at the toll booth. Troopers said the crash may have been a suicide.

“As part of this ongoing investigation, we have obtained further information of a possible suicide and will continue investigating,” Trooper Wanda Diaz stated.

The E-Pass lanes and two lanes where drivers can get receipts or change from toll booth attendants were not damaged by the crash and reopened Thursday as soon as emergency response teams cleared them.

The accident damaged the two exact-change lanes, where drivers throw coins into baskets at unmanned booths. Those lanes were expected to remain closed into Friday, but expressway engineers expected they could repair and reopen them by late Friday or Saturday at the latest, said expressway authority spokesman Jeff Marshall.

Accidents periodically occur in toll booth plazas, but they’re typically low-speed, without injuries.

Still, other toll road authorities, including the Florida Turnpike Enterprise, have begun installing toll plazas that have only express-lanes with electronic tolling, and no toll booths where traffic must stop and go.

The Central Florida Expressway Authority has not done that and has no immediate plans to remove any toll booths in favor of all electronic tolling. However, when the Wekiva Parkway is built in western Orange and Seminole counties, it will feature express-lane only tolling.

“Because of our visitors, we’re conscious of the fact that not everyone is going to have a transponder, so we try to have cash available as an option as much as we can,” Marshall said. “Overall, nationwide, the toll industry is going toward an all-electronic model, so that may happen in the future, but we don’t have any plans for that now, except for the Wekiva Parkway.”

That particular toll plaza was rebuilt in the middle of the past decade, reopening in 2006. The authority also recently wrapped up construction that widened the travel lanes through that area, but that work did not affect the toll booths, Marshall said. Another construction project is now underway north of there.
