Camden DUI crash video goes viral

A Felton man was arrested after crashing his car into a ditch on Wednesday afternoon, and the crash is now going viral.


The incident was captured on a security camera near a Wawa on East Street and Route 13 on Wednesday just before 2:00 p.m.. In the video, the man makes a right turn into a ditch and splashes to a stop.


Camden Police tells TV Delmarva News that the driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI. He received minor cuts to his face in the single vehicle crash and denied medical assistance.


The video has gone viral since it was posted Thursday afternoon with a warning from CPD to not drink and drive. 


“We were not expecting that kind of reaction,” Camden Police Chief Marc Whitney tells TV Delmarva News. “Goes to show that [drinking and driving] can happen at anytime.”


So far, the video has over 80,000 views and shared over 1,000 times on Facebook.
