Motorcyclist Killed in Selbyville Crash

Posted: Updated:

SELBYVILLE, Del.– Delaware State Police say a motorcyclist was killed in an accident that occurred Saturday morning at the intersection of Lighthouse and Hudson roads in Selbyville.

The victim, 69-year-old John Scott of Salisbury, Md. was pronounced dead as he was flown to Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Police said that at around 11:54 a.m. Saturday, Scott was heading west on Lighthouse Road and approached an eastbound car as it was turning left. Troopers said 22-year-old Kim Tran, of Selbyville, was driving an Acura and approached the Lighthouse and Hudson Road intersection, ready to make a left hand turn.

Police said Scott approached the Acura in the intersection and his motorcycle fell onto its side, slammed into the passenger side of Tran's car, and trapped Scott underneath.

Tran was not injured in the crash.

No charges have been filed in connection with the crash and police said speeding and alcohol do not appear to be factors. The roadway was closed for approximately four hours as troopers investigated and cleared the crash.
 
The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident, and asking anyone who witnessed it is asked to call Cpl/3 Burns at (302) 644-5020, ext. 112.

Legislators voted last week to have Maryland's minimum wage reach $10.10 an hour by July 2018, whereas Gov. Martin O'Malley originally wanted it to reach that amount by July 2016.More
