As the truck was on the shoulder, a transit van was traveling southbound in the right lane. The van drifted onto the shoulder and struck the driver of the truck, who was standing outside of his vehicle at the time. The van then overturned after the collision. The 43-year-old driver of the pickup was taken to Christiana Hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the van was treated for minor injuries.
