Laurel Man Dies from Injuries Sustained in Motorcycle Crash

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del. - A Laurel man has died from his injuries after a serious motorcycle crash in Lewes.
 
It happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday Sept.12, as 39-year-old Russell L. Pedrick, of Laurel, was operating a motorcycle northbound on Coastal Highway near Shady Road.  

Police say Marti L. Keeney, 52 of Raleigh, North Carolina, was in a car in front of the motorcycle. 

According to police, Keeney was preparing to stop at the stop sign to cross over Coastal Highway when the motorcycle failed to stop and hit the car. Police say the impact caused the motorcyclist to be ejected into the turn lane.
 
Authorities say Pedrick was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.  He was initially transported by EMS to Beebe Healthcare and later transported to Christiana Medical Center where he was admitted in critical condition and later died as a result of his injuries on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing the investigation into this incident and alcohol appears to be a contributing factor on behalf of the motorcyclist.  Traffic in the area was affected due to lane restrictions for approximately two and a half hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
