An elderly Lewes woman is dead following a crash Tuesday afternoon in Milton.

Delaware State Police say the crash happened just before 2 p.m. on Route 1 at Clifton Road as Joseph Waples of Ellendale was attempting to cross Route 1 in his truck tractor with no trailer.

Police say Waples crossed the northbound lanes of the highway and came to a stop at the center cross-over before pulling into the path of a southbound car driven by 72-year-old Margaret Clift.

Clift was taken to Milford Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead; her husband, James, was a passenger in the car; he was taken to Beebe Medical Center and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Waples was NOT hurt in the crash.

No charges have been filed. And police continue to investigate the crash.
