According to police, the woman and her 14-year-old son were walking on the sidewalk underneath the 141 overpass when she stepped on the grate, exposing a live electrical wire underneath it. The woman was electrocuted and knocked to the ground by the charge, police said. She was able to call 911 on her cell phone and was transported to Christiana Hospital where she was being treated for injuries police say were not life threatening.

Police say the Delaware Department of Transportation made repairs to the area immediately after the 5:45 p.m. incident occurred.
