Georgetown Crash Leaves One Dead, One Seriously Injured

Posted: Updated:
GEORGETOWN, Del. - Authorities say a Sunday afternoon crash between a car and a motorcycle in Georgetown left one woman dead and a man seriously injured.

Delaware State Police said troopers responded to a crash on Dupont Boulevard (U.S. 113) at around 3:45 p.m. Sunday. According to police, a preliminary investigation indicates Marianne Worley, 78, of Millsboro, was driving southbound on Dupont Boulevard when she made a left turn toward Speedway Road, stopping in the median crossover. Investigators said that at at the same time, Bobby Luzader, 78, of  Dover, with Jane Kauffman, 65, of Harrington, Del., as a passenger, was driving a 2005 Honda GLB three-wheeled motorcycle in the northbound lanes on Dupont Boulevard approaching the intersection with Speedway Road.

Police said while making the turn, Worley crossed the path of the motorcycle. Troopers said that in an attempt to avoid a collision, Luzader swerved onto the shoulder, but the car struck the left side of the motorcycle. The impact split the motorcycle in half, with the rear portion detaching from the front. Police said both riders were thrown, and the car ran into a tree on the side of the road.

Luzader was flown from the scene by a Delaware State Police helicopter to Kent General Hospital where he was stabilized and then flown to Christiana Hospital. He is listed in serious condition. His passenger, Kauffman, was taken to Beebe Medical Center and then flown to Christiana Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police said both motorcycle riders were wearing helmets at the time of the crash.
Worley was also taken to Beebe Medical Center and was treated for a minor injury and released. Police said Worley was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation and no charges have been filed. The northbound lanes of Dupont Parkway were closed for approximately three hours as troopers investigated and cleared the crash.
