WILMINGTON, Delaware — Delaware State Police say two men were arrested after two cars collided in Wilmington, injuring three people.

It happened about 2 p.m. Saturday on Old Capitol Trail. Troopers say 20-year-old Christopher Garay, of Wilmington was driving north when he tried to make a left turn onto Farrand Drive.

Garay, Bermudez and Lambert were taken to a hospital for treatment.
