GREENWOOD, DELAWARE (8/1/2015) Two men were injured, one critically, after their pickup truck overturned on U.S. 13 north of Greenwood on Friday, Delaware State Police said this morning.

The accident happened about 4:40 p.m.

Police said David W. Talley, 20, of Bear was driving a 2004 Ford F-250 in the northbound lanes at high speed when he lost control, drove off the east side into a one-way sign and a mailbox, then crossed back over the northbound lanes into the median and struck an embankment.

The truck overturned several times, ejecting Talley and a passenger, Donald J. Woods, 44, of Newark. Both were not properly wearing seat belts, police said.

Woods was flown by state police helicopter to Christiana Hospital in Stanton and was in critical condition.

Talley was taken by ambulance to Bayhealth Milford Memorial Hospital, treated for injuries not life-threatening and released, police said.

Traffic on South DuPont Highway (U.S. 13) was affected about 2 hours as police investigated and the wreckage was cleared.
