Milford Man in Critical Condition After Crash in Frederica

Posted: Updated:

FREDERICA, Del.- A Milford man is in critical condition after a serious crash in Frederica Saturday night.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit says it happened on Bay Road (SR1) southbound just south of Tub Mill Road around 7:05 p.m. on January 2.

Police say 56-year-old Jose Palacious, of Norfolk, Virginia, was operating a 2005 Toyota Camry southbound on SR1 in the left lane just south of Tub Mill Pond Road. 

David  Cane, 40 of Milford, was in the process of crossing SR1 southbound from east to west through the grass median on his bicycle when police say he entered into the left lane. 

Police say the car then struck the bicyclist with the front bumper causing Cane to be thrown from his bicycle and onto the pavement. 

According to police, Palacious was able to bring his vehicle to a controlled stop immediately after the crash. 

Police say Christopher Drummond, 25 of Milford was operating a 2006 Jeep Wrangler southbound on SR1 in the right lane approximately two car lengths behind the Camry when he saw the collision ahead.  Police say he swerved to the left and then to the right which caused the Wrangler to overturn and come to a stop off the west side of the roadway in a yard.

David Cane, who was not wearing a helmet but was in possession of a small flashlight, was airlifted from the scene by Delaware State Police Aviation (Trooper 2) to Christiana Medical Center where he is currently listed in critical condition.

Christopher Drummond, who was not properly restrained, was ejected from his vehicle and transported to Bayhealth Milford Memorial Hospital (MMH) where he was treated and released with non-life-threatening injuries.  A 46-year-old female passenger in the Jeep was properly restrained and also treated and released from MMH for non-life-threatening injuries.

Jose Palacious and a 69-year-old female passenger were properly restrained and uninjured in the crash.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident.  SR1 southbound at Tub Mill Pond Road was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.  No charges have been filed in this case.

Mill Pond Road, and commuters are advised to use a different route to avoid the accident.

No identities have been released at this time.  Delaware State Police say they will release more information once their investigation has concluded.
