WILMINGTON, Del. -

A 17-year-old Wilmington boy was killed and four others were injured in a crash at the intersection of Centerville Road and East Red Clay Drive Saturday night.

According to investigators with the New Castle County Police Department, the victim was identified Sunday as Anthony Maguire of Wilmington.

Police say Maguire was a passenger in a Jeep Wrangler that was involved in the crash with a Dodge Stratus.

The crash was reported shortly after 7 p.m.

The drivers of both cars, a 60-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy were taken to Christiana Medical Center for minor injuries.

Two passengers of the Dodge , ages 60 and 86, were also taken to Christiana Medical Center for minor injuries. Both drivers and the two passengers were later released from the hospital.

According to police, Maguire was not wearing a seatbelt and died as a result of head injuries.

Police say the Dodge Stratus, driven by the 60-year-old man, was turning from East Red Clay Drive onto southbound Centerville Road as the Jeep Wrangler was traveling northbound. The intersection is controlled by a stop sign, police said.

According to investigators, the left front of the Dodge struck the right front of the Jeep, causing it to rotate counterclockwise. Soon after, police say the Jeep went airborne and flipped several times.

Police have not released the cause of the accident.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?
