HARBESON, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say a Millsboro man has been charged with driving under the influence of heroin after he crashed head-on with state troopers near Harbeson.

The crash happened Friday afternoon. Police say no one was seriously injured.

Investigators say 28-year-old Robert Rickrode of Millsboro was driving a pickup truck around a curve on Beaver Dam Road when he drove into the path of a state police cruiser. The vehicles collided, and the truck rolled onto its side but landed upright.

A 23-year-old female trooper and a 28-year-old male trooper were taken to a hospital for minor injuries. They were treated and released.

Rickrode was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. He was then arrested and charged with vehicular assault, driving under the influence of heroin and other charges.
