Del. Motorcyclist Injured in July Crash Dies

Updated:

SEAFORD, Del.- Authorities say a Georgetown man left seriously injured in a Seaford-area motorcycle crash in late July has died.

Delaware State Police said 65-year-old Joseph E. Thomas, of Georgetown, Sunday morning, Aug. 18, at Delaware Hospice in Milford.
 
The crash occurred July 27 north on Concord Pond Road, south of Hastings Farm Road.

Troopers said that for an unknown reason, Thomas' Harley-Davidson motorcycle left the east side of the roadway and drove into a ditch where it stayed upright, traveling north for several hundred feet.
 
The motorcycle then began to leave the ditch, throwing him off the bike. 

Police said Thomas was not wearing a helmet and landed with his head striking a roadside utility box.
 
Thomas was taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital and then flown to Christiana Hospital. He was later moved to Delaware Hospice where he succumbed to his injuries.
