On March 28, 2021, at approximately 8:53 a.m., a 2012 Ford Escape operated by a 27-year-old man of Berlin, MD, was traveling eastbound on Seashore Highway, approaching the intersection of Sussex Highway with a red light. A 2017 Ford Explorer (fully marked Laurel Police Department K9 Police Car) operated by a Laurel Police Department Officer with 14 years of service was traveling southbound on Sussex Highway in the left lane approaching the intersection of Seashore Highway with a green light. A 2006 Ford Escape operated by a 66-year-old female of Millsboro was traveling northbound on Sussex Highway, stopped in the turn lane for westbound Seashore Highway with a red light.
