Two Motorcycles Involved in Del. Collision

Updated: Sep 6, 2013 08:35 AM EDT

MILLSBORO, Del.– Delaware State Police are investigating a late Thursday afternoon collision between two motorcycles near Millsboro.

Troopers said the collision occurred at around 5 p.m. as 61-year-old Stanley J. Grella, of Bethany Beach, was operating a 2007 Harley-Davidson motorcycle and 75-year-old Gerald M. Townsend, of Ocean View, was operating a 2008 Harley-Davidson motorcycle eastbound on Hardscrabble Road, SR20, approaching Godwin School Road.

According to police, the motorcyclists were in a staggered riding position with Grella closest to the center line and Townsend closest to the fog line. Investigators said that as Grella began to turn right onto Godwin School Road, Townsend failed to notice and struck Grella's motorcycle on the right side, ejecting the riders from the bikes and onto the roadway.

Troopers said Grella, who was not wearing a helmet, was flown by DSP helicopter to Christiana Medical Center where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Police said he was cited for no proof of insurance.

Police said Townsend, who was also not wearing a helmet, was transported by EMS to Beebe Medical Center where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. He was cited for inattentive driving.

Police said traffic on SR20 was impacted for approximately one hour and a half as the incident was investigated and cleared.
