Teen dies in Harrington crash

HARRINGTON, DE – (AP) Delaware State Police are investigating a single vehicle crash that claimed the life of a Harrington girl on Saturday morning.

Investigators say 17-year-old Kori Minner was driving her car northbound on Fox Hunters Road when a hunting dog ran onto the road. Police say Minner swerved to avoid striking the dog, then overcorrected and lost control of the car. The car hit a tree and Minner died at the scene.

Police believe the dog was one of several being loaded into an SUV by two men near the crash scene. After the crash, police believe the men retrieved the dog and left the area before police arrived.
