NEWARK, Del. (AP) - A Delaware man died after police say his car drifted into another lane that was carrying traffic in the opposite direction, leading to a head-on collision.

Delaware State Police said Sunday that 41-year-old Lamar R. Elam of Wilmington died in the emergency room of Christiana Hospital following the Saturday evening crash in Newark.

A police news release says Elam’s northbound Infiniti collided with a Jeep traveling southbound. The Jeep’s driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The accident closed a section of Polly Drummond Road for three hours Saturday night.
