NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) — Delaware State Police say a man is dead and four other people are injured after a crash in New Castle over the weekend.

Police say the crash happened Sunday afternoon as a Toyota Corolla traveling southbound on North DuPont Highway and a northbound Chevrolet Malibu collided as they both turned onto eastbound East Franklin Avenue.

A 40-year-old man riding in the back seat of the Corolla was flown to a hospital, where police say he later died.
