An Ellendale woman is facing numerous charges after two people were stuck by a vehicle in the Milford Walmart parking lot over the weekend.
On the afternoon of March, 7 officers from the Milford Police Department’s Patrol Division were called to the parking lot of the store on Route 113. They found two victims with serious injuries who were transported to the Bayhealth Sussex Campus in Milford.
