KENTON, Delaware — Delaware State Police say a woman was killed when the SUV she was riding in hit a culvert, became airborne and hit a tree near Kenton.

It happened about 1:35 a.m. Monday on Sudlersville Road. Troopers say 21-year-old Kevin Perry of Maryland was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe east when he failed to make a curve.

Officers say the Tahoe stopped when it hit a tree.

A passenger in the Tahoe, 21-year old Dymond Dantzler of Maryland, was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers say Perry was taken to a hospital for injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening.

The crash is under investigation.
