DELAWARE CITY, Del. - A man was hospitalized after being struck by a car driven by his wife while he was teaching her how to drive, state police said Monday.
The incident occurred about 8:32 p.m. in the parking lot of the Department of Motor Vehicles office off U.S. 13, said Sgt. Paul Shavack.
The 34-year-old man, who was not identified, was teaching his 28-year-old wife how to drive in preparation for an upcoming driver's test and he got out of the 2006 Honda Civic in order to remove a traffic cone lodged under the car, Shavack said.
While trying to remove the cone, the victim lost his balance and fell forward.
His wife, also not identified by police, accelerated forward and hit her husband, pinning him briefly under the car, Shavack said.
The man was flown to Christiana Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, Shavack said.
He said he did not know Monday if the victim had been released.
The incident remains under investigation and no charges have been filed, Shavack said.
