A Wilmington woman was hospitalized last night after being shocked by an exposed wire beneath an electrical grate. The woman and her teenage son were on Centerville Road beneath the 141 overpass when she walked over a metal grate and fell the the ground, the News Journal reports.

    Christiana Hospital determined the woman, who did not suffer burns, likely has nonlife-threatening injuries.
