Delaware State Police are investigating a multi-fatal crash that killed five members of a New Jersey family, including four children and one adult, and shut down part of Route 1 traffic in New Castle County on Friday afternoon.

The accident happened on Route 1 northbound in the area of Pine Tree Road in Townsend around 3:50 p.m. And officials say there were two survivors from the crash, including the wife of one of the deceased victims.

Police say a work-style pickup truck was headed southbound on Pine Tree Road when it crossed over the center median into northbound traffic. The truck hit a passenger vehicle that was traveling northbound on Route 1. The passenger car came to a rest at the center median as the truck continued southbound on the northbound lanes when a minivan struck it.
