Other driver uninjured

Delaware State Police are investigating a serious crash that occurred at the intersection of John J. Williams Highway (Route 24) and Long Neck Road (Route 5) Thursday evening.

The incident occurred at around9 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 1, as a Honda motorcycle was traveling westbound on Route 24, approaching the intersection with Route 5. Subsequently, a 2006 Isuzu sweeper truck was traveling eastbound, approaching the same intersection. 

The operator of the Honda, 43-year-old Snow Hill, Maryland man, attempted a left turn directly in the path of the Isuzu, resulting in an impact in the eastbound lane. The Honda was redirected eastbound and was pushed by the Isuzu for a short distance before coming to a rest. The operator of the Honda was ejected from the motorcycle and came to rest next to the Isuzu.

The operator of the Honda was transported to Beebe Healthcare prior to being transferred to the Christiana Hospital in serious condition. He was wearing a helmet during the time of this crash and alcohol is considered to be a factor on his behalf. The operator of the Isuzu, a 42-year old Salisbury, Maryland man, was properly restrained and uninjured.

John J. Williams Highway, at the intersection of Long Neck Road, was closed for approximately two hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
