Police Identify Victims of Smyrna Motorcycle Crash

Posted: Updated:

SMYRNA, Del. - Police have released the identities of the two people involved in a serious motorcycle crash in Smyrna Sunday night.

According to the Delaware State Police, 53-year-old James Smith of Dover was driving a motorcycle southbound on Route 1 when he lost control because of what police are calling "an alleged mechanical malfunction." Both he and his wife, 51-year-old Kimberly Smith, were thrown from the bike in the area of Exit 119, police said.

James was treated for undetermined non-life-threatening injures at Bayhealth Kent General, while police said Kimberly was airlifted there and, thanks to advanced lifesaving efforts by paramedics, admitted in critical condition.

The Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into the crash. Police say speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors. Route 1 at Exit 119 was closed for approximately three and a half hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
