The inci- dent occurred about 2:05 a.m., July 25, when Abigail K. Cellini, 21 of Milford, operating a 2011 Chevrolet Aveo westbound on Fisher Road just east of Hopkins Road, drove off the north side of the roadway and struck a utility pole on the driver's side. Cellini, who was properly restrained, was extricated from the vehicle by emergency responders and initially transported to Beebe Healthcare, but she was later flown to Christiana Medical Cen- ter, where she remains in critical condition. Troopers continue to investigate the incident. Alcohol may have been a factor in this case. Fisher Road east of Hopkins Road was closed for approxi- mately two hours while a utility crew repaired the pole. Rehoboth police seek suspects in wallet theft The Rehoboth Beach Police Department is seeking more information on two suspects who police say stole a wallet at the Beach Arcade.
