Delaware State Police charged a Wilmington woman with two counts of vehicular assault in connection with a crash on northbound Concord Pike at the south entrance to the Concord Mall Tuesday.

The collision between a small car and a stake body truck happened just after 1 p.m. on July 9, 2019, and it took Talleyville firefighters about a half-hour to extricate all of the victims.

Troopers say 54-year old Sonja L. Todd was under the influence of drugs when she ran a red light and hit a car turning southbound onto Route 202 from the mall.

The 17-year old driver of the car and an 18-year old passenger were treated at the scene by New Castle County paramedics and a Delaware State Police trooper medic for serious, non-life threatening injuries before taken by ambulance to hospitals.

A 13-year old passenger was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

A Delaware State Police helicopter landed in the nearby Sears parking lot but was not utilized.

Todd, who was not injured, was charged with 2 counts of Vehicular Assault 1st Degree, Driving Under the Influence of Drugs and Failure to Stop at a Red Light.

She was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court #2 and released after posting a $6,600.00 secured bond.
