Update: Man Dies Following Motorcycle Accident Near Clayton

Posted: Updated:

CLAYTON, Del.- Delaware State Police say a Maryland man has died as a result of the injuries he sustained in a Saturday evening motorcycle crash near Clayton.

Troopers on Tuesday announced the death of 53-year-old Robert A. Kimble.

Police said the crash happened at around 9:44 p.m. Saturday as Kimble was riding a 2007 Harley Davidson Dyna low rider motorcycle northbound on Blackiston Road north of Chance Road. Investigators said that a 2003 Jeep Liberty, driven by Joy L. Taylor, 42, of Maryland, was northbound on Blackiston in front of the motorcycle. Police said Kimble attempted to pass the Jeep on a double yellow line when it struck the left rear fender of the Jeep. The impact sent the Jeep spinning out of control and into a grass field, according to investigators, and Kimble was thrown from the motorcycle as it went down on its left side. The motorcycle slid into the southbound lane where it stopped north of the collision.

Police said Kimble, who was wearing a helmet, was treated by paramedics before being transported by the Delaware State Police Aviation Unit to the Christiana Hospital Trauma Center. He later succumbed to his injuries. Police said alcohol and speed were factors on the part of Kimble.

Taylor and her three passengers were all wearing seat belts and were uninjured in the collision, according to police. 

This crash remains under investigation by the Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit.
