Del. woman, 49, dies in crash; other car going wrong way

A 49-year-old Delaware woman was killed Saturday night when another car collided head-on with her vehicle as she drove on Route 9 west of Harbeson, Del., Delaware State Police said.

The woman, who was wearing a seatbelt, was identified as Stephanie L. Marvel, of Georgetown, Del. She had been traveling west on Route 9 shortly before 8 p.m. when a car being driven east by Corey A. Ortwein, 20, of Lewes, crossed over into her lane, police said. Ortwein narrowly missed hitting another vehicle before Marvel's, but its driver swerved to avoid a collision, according to police.

Ortwein and a passenger, Kara B. Leonardo, 44, of Georgetown, were both treated for serious injuries. Police were continuing to investigate the crash and said they did not know why Ortwein drove into oncoming traffic.
