MILFORD, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police say a 19-year-old man was killed in crash with a tractor trailer on Milford-Harrington Highway over the weekend. 

The crash happened Saturday night when police say the 17-year-old driver of a westbound Toyota Camry tried to pass a car in a no-passing zone.  The teen pulled into the path of the eastbound tractor trailer, then swerved onto the shoulder, but police said she wasn’t able to avoid a crash. The tractor trailer landed on its side between the travel lanes.  The Camry’s driver was flown to a hospital with serious injuries, but police say her passenger, a 19-year-old man from Harrington, died on the scene.

The tractor trailer driver was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
