Motorcyclist Killed After Being Hit By Car Near Dagsboro

Posted: Updated:

DAGSBORO, Del. - Multiple crashes were reported Saturday as thousands of people descended onto Delmarva for the long holiday weekend, but in one case, a man lost his life on the roadways.

33-year-old Lucas M. Miller, of West Lawn, Pennsylvania, was sitting on his 2016 FZ07 motorcycle, stopped on the eastbound shoulder of SR 26 just before 11 p.m. Saturday night, when he was struck by a car, Delaware State Police said Sunday. Master Corporal Gary Fournier with the Delaware State Police said 26-year-old Amber L. Petersheim, of Mount Joy, Pennsylvania, was driving a 2008 Nissan Xterra eastbound on SR 26 about one mile east of Dagsboro when, for unknown reasons, she went out of her travel lane and drifted onto the shoulder where the right front bumper struck the back of the motorcycle. The motorcycle became lodged in the engine compartment of the Xterra and remained upright while Miller was ejected to the ground, Fournier said.

Miller, who was wearing a helmet at the time, was transported by EMS to Peninsula Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Petersheim, who was wearing a seatbelt and is eight months pregnant, was transported by EMS to Beebe Healthcare for observation only.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident.  Alcohol and/or drugs do not appear to be factors in this case and no charges have been filed at this time, according to police.  SR26 was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
