SEAFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police announced Thursday that a bicyclist critically injured in an October 2013 crash has died as a result of his injuries.
 
Police said 48-year-old David Emery of Seaford, died Wednesday evening at Pinnacle Nursing and Rehab, where he had been admitted since Dec. 31 for long-term health care needs.
 
According to police, at around 7:24 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, Emery was traveling southbound on the southbound shoulder of Sussex Highway (US13) and approaching Herring Run Road. Troopers said that an unknown white pick-up truck was traveling southbound in the right lane when it struck Emery as he was attempting to cross US13 from west to east. 
 
Police said that following the initial contact, Emery was forced off his bicycle, and landed near the centerline of US13. Investigators said that while attempting to stand up, Emery was struck by the right side mirror of a 2012 Honda Civic, operated by 51-year-old Mark Lowe of Laurel, while traveling in the southbound left lane. Police said that after the second impact, Emery tumbled in a southern direction, coming to rest in the left lane of Sussex Highway. The white pickup truck continued southbound and was not located, troopers said. Police said the Honda Civic continued southbound before making a U-turn at the Herring Run Road intersection and returned to the scene.
 
Emery was transported by ambulance to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where he was initially admitted in critical condition before being transferred to Christiana Hospital and finally to Pinnacle Nursing and Rehab.
 
The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this crash and no charges have been filed.
 
Anyone with information about the white pickup is asked to contact Master Cpl. K. Argo at (302)644-5020, ext. 117, or by utilizing the DSP Mobile Crime Tip Application available to download at http://www.delaware.gov/apps/.  Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
