Delaware State player seriously injured in car crash

A Delaware State University football player was hospitalized in serious condition Thursday after his car was hit twice in an early morning accident.

Officials said Jadira Green, of Fort Washington, Md., was stopped completely in his 1998 Buick Century on Delaware Route 1 northbound without its lights on when hit by a box truck at 4:09 a.m.

Green's vehicle was pushed into another lane and struck again on the passenger side by a tour bus.

Green, who police said was not wearing a seat belt, was transported by ambulance to Christiana Hospital Trauma Center.

A 6-foot-4, 300-pound offensive lineman at Delaware State, Green is scheduled to be a fifth-year senior in the 2013 season.
