BEAR, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say a man hurt in a single-vehicle crash has died of his injuries.

Troopers say 80-year-old Rafael S. Patino of Monroe Township, New Jersey, died Monday at Christiana Hospital, where he was taken after the Dec. 9 crash.

Police say Patino’s son, 50-year-old Rafael J. Patino of New Castle, Delaware, was driving an SUV on Delaware Route 896. Officers say the vehicle drifted off the road and hit the end of a metal guardrail.

The younger Patino and two other passengers were taken to Christiana Hospital with injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening.

The crash remains under investigation.
