DSP Investigating Two Motorcycle Accidents In Delaware

Posted: Updated:

DELAWARE - Delaware State Police say they are currently investigating a pair of separate motorcycle crashes that occurred on Wednesday evening.

Police say the first crash occurred around 9:00 PM. According to reports, 66 year-old James Dijiacomo was operating a 2009 Chevrolet Impala Northbound in the right lane on Coastal Highway just south of Cave Neck Road, near Milton.

That's when investigators say John Vincent, 24, who was reportedly on a 2011 Honda motorcycle, allegedly struck the rear of the car causing him to be thrown from the motorcycle and onto the shoulder of the roadway. 

Investigators say Dijiacomo was not injured in the crash but Vincent, who was not wearing a helmet, was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Beebe Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. 

Police say Vincent was later cited for multiple charges including driving under the influence of a combination of alcohol and drugs, driving while suspended or revoked, no motorcycle endorsement, no proof of insurance, no registration in possession, and no helmet in possession.

Delaware State Police say the second crash occurred just after 10:00 PM. Investigators say 24 year-old Jeffrey McWaine Jr. was operating a 1995 Honda CBR600 Eastbound on Webbs Lane when a white vehicle traveling Westbound turned into McDaniel Drive, Kent Acres Development, in front of him. 

According to reports, in an attempt to avoid striking the white vehicle, McWaine applied his brakes and was thrown from the motorcycle onto the pavement.  That's when police say the white vehicle continued into the development without stopping. 

McWaine, who was wearing a helmet, was removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Kent General Hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. 

Police say he was cited with driving while suspended, no proof of insurance, and fictitious or cancelled registration.  Authorities say he was later transferred from Kent General to Christiana Medical Center where he is currently admitted.
