A van pulled into the path of a mail truck in Harbeson, injuring a mail carrier who was airlifted to a hospital in serious condition, according to Delaware State Police.

The accident happened about 11:30 a.m. Thursday, March 9, snarling traffic for about two hours in the vicinity of Harbeson and Anderson Corner roads.

A Ford Transit Connect driven by Michael S. Mears of Georgetown crossed the intersection into the path of a mail truck driven by mail carrier Kimberly R. Humphrey of Milford, the DSP said.

Humphrey, 44, was airlifted by state police aviation to Christiana Medical Center and admitted in serious condition, police said.

Police did not indicate the direction the mail truck traveled.

Both drivers were properly restrained, police said.
