Motorcyclist Injured in Greenwood Area Crash Dies

Updated:

GREENWOOD, Del.- Authorities say a motorcyclist has died as a result of injuries he sustained in a weekend crash on US 13 south of Greenwood.

Delaware State Police said that at around 9:20 p.m. Sunday, July 6, a 2008 Ford F-150 pickup truck operated by Charles Lofland, 66, of Seaford, and a 2002 Harley Davidson motorcycle operated by John Hodgson, 67, of Millsboro, were both traveling south in the left lane of US 13 just south of Cart Branch Road.

Investigators said for reasons currently unknown, the motorcycle struck the left rear of the pickup, before losing control, falling to the ground, and ejecting Hodgson. The pickup was able to pull to a controlled stop in the grass median, police said. However, the Harley and Hodgson came to an uncontrolled stop in the median just east of the travel lane, investigators said.

Police said Hodgson, who was not wearing a helmet, was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford. He was then flown to Christiana Medical Center where he was originally listed in critical condition. Hodgson died from his injuries Monday afternoon, police said.

Lofland and the three adult passengers in the pickup were all properly restrained and uninjured, according to investigators.

US 13 south of Cart Branch Road was closed for approximately three hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into the accident. Anyone who witnessed the crash is sasked to call Master Cpl. J. Burns at (302) 644-5020, ext. 112.
