SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a 69-year-old man and his 14-year-old granddaughter suffered significant injuries Wednesday morning after the motorcycle they were riding on collided with a pickup truck west of Salisbury.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office reports that shortly after 8 a.m. deputies responded to the intersection of Pemberton Drive and Royal Mile Boulevard for a motor vehicle crash involving a motorcycle and a pickup truck. 

According to the Sheriff's Office, the investigation determined that 69-year-old Lewis Culbertson, of Tyaskin, and his 14-year-old granddaughter, were riding on a 2015 Suzuki Boulevard motorcycle and traveling east on Pemberton Drive. Investigators said that as the pair approached the intersection of Royal Mile Boulevard. a pickup being driven by 45-year-old William Mengason, of Salisbury, turned into the path of the motorcycle. The motorcycle collided with the pickup, causing it to go down under the truck and pinning Culbertson under the motorcycle, investigators said. 

Authorities said that although both Culbertson and his granddaughter were wearing helmets, they both suffered significant injuries. Culbertson was air-lifted from Peninsula Regional Medical Cente to Christiana Medical Center, where he is listed in stable, but critical condition. His granddaughter was flown to Nemours A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children, were she is listed in stable condition.

The Sheriff's Office's Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing the investigation into this incident and at this time no charges have been filed. 

Pemberton Drive was closed for approximately three hours while the collision was investigated. .
