Newark Police Investigate Serious Collision Involving a Motorcycle

Elkton and Thorn

May 22, 2018 - The Newark Police Department Traffic Unit is investigating a serious collision, involving a motorcycle, that took place at approximately 8:21 pm on Monday night, May 212018.

The initial investigation indicates that a burgundy 1999 Honda Accord, operated by a 30-year-old female from Newark, was eastbound on Elkton Road approaching Thorn Lane - in the left turn lane - preparing to turn left onto Thorn Lane. A red 2005 Honda 600cc motorcycle, operated by a 27-year-old male, also from Newark, was westbound on Elkton Road in the right thru lane, also approaching Thorn Lane. As the light turned yellow for traffic on Elkton Road, the Honda Accord made a left turn and struck the motorcycle as they were both passing through the intersection.

The motorcycle operator was ejected from the motorcycle and came to rest on the sidewalk on the north side of Elkton Road, west of the intersection with Thorn Lane. The motorcycle operator, who was wearing a helmet, was transported to Christiana ER via DSP helicopter. At this time, it does not appear as though the motorcycle operator’s injuries are life threatening. The operator of the vehicle did not sustain any injuries in the collision.

Police are continuing the investigation and charges are pending.

Anyone with additional information regarding this collision is encouraged to contact Cpl. Patrick Craig of the NPD Traffic Unit at (302) 366-7100 ext. 3416 or
