Second Person Dies From Thursday's Delmar Crash

Posted:
DELMAR, Del.- Delaware State Police say the driver of the motorcycle involved in a crash Thursday evening in Delmar has passed away from his injuries.  60-year-old John H. English of Delmar, Del., who has been at R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore was pronounced dead this morning.  The passenger on the motorcycle, 48-year-old Lisa L. Booth of Delmar was pronounced dead at the scene on Thursday.

Police said that shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday, English was operating a motorcycle on Sussex Highway approximately a quarter mile north of Iron Hill Road. Troopers said that is when what is believed to have been an unknown vehicle may have pulled out in front of the motorcycle. The motorcycle operator locked the brakes and tried to avoid crashing but both English, and his passenger, Booth, were ejected onto the roadway, investigators said.

Police said that shortly after the crash, a Honda Accord traveling on Sussex Highway partially ran over the female victim, who was apparently unconscious in the right lane.

Booth was subsequently pronounced dead at the scene. English was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury where he is in serious condition before being transferred to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

Troopers said the operator of the Honda Accord, Richard N. Jones, 32, of Delmar, was properly restrained and uninjured.
The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into the collision and investigators are trying to determine if a non-contact vehicle contributed to the initial crash. Police also said the preliminary investigation suggests alcohol is believed to be a factor on behalf of the motorcycle operator. 

If anyone has any information in reference to this incident, they are asked to contact Sgt. A. Mendez at 302-644-5020 ext. 119 or by utilizing the Delaware State Police 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 the internet at www.tipsubmit.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."
