GEORGETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police say a motorcyclist involved in a Friday night crash with a DART bus in Georgetown has died from his injuries.

Troopers said 68-year-old James L. Barron, of Georgetown, died Monday morning.

Police said the incident happened just before 7:30 p.m. Friday as Selena Cannon, 51, of Bridgeville, was driving a 2009 DART bus and was stopped in the lefthand turn lane from southbound South Bedford Street into the DART bus yard, just north of US113 (DuPont Boulevard).  

Troopers said that as Cannon crossed the northbound lanes of South Bedford Street, she pulled directly into the path of a Barron's BMW motorcycle, which was traveling northbound on South Bedford Street. Police said the front of the motorcycle then struck the front of the DART bus, ejecting Barron.  He then struck the bus windshield. Barron was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, police said.

A Delaware State Police helicopter airlifted Barron to Christiana Hospital where he was admitted in critical condition before succumbing to his injuries.  

Cannon, who police said was wearing a seat belt during the crash, was the sole occupant of the bus.  She was reportedly not not injured.

Troopers cited Cannon for failure to yield the right of way on a lefthand turn.

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation into this incident.  Alcohol and drug impairment on behalf of either operator are not factors in this case, according to police, who said additional charges are pending the outcome of the investigation.
