A Georgetown man and Salisbury man were killed in a head-on collision that occurred Saturday night on US Route 9 east of Laurel. Mario Lucas, 22, of Georgetown was traveling east on 9 when he crossed the center line and hit Mei-Liao Lo, 69, of Salisbury. Lucas died on the scene. Lo was airlifted to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury where he died. Lo’s wife was also in his car. She had some non-life threatening injuries. I heard at church that Route 9 was closed from Hardscrabble to Dukes Lumber Road. It was closed for about three hours. It was also reported that police and emergency responders came from Georgetown, Seaford, and Laurel. It hasn’t been reported if alcohol was involved.
