UPDATE: Seaford Bicyclist Dies After October Crash

Posted: Updated:

SEAFORD, Del. - A Seaford bicyclist has succumb to injuries sustained in an October crash. Delaware State Police say they have new information about the October 13th crash, that critically injured 48-year-old David Emery on Sussex Highway (Route 13).

Police say Emery was riding in the Southbound shoulder of Sussex Highway, coming up to Herring Run Road, when an unknown white pickup truck, also traveling Southbound, hit Emery, as he was trying to cross the road, forcing him off his bicycle. According to the report, as Emery was attempting to standup, he was hit by the side mirror of a 2012 Honda Civic, driven Southbound by 51-year-old Mark Lowe, and tumbled to a stop in the left lane of Sussex Highway.

Police say the white pickup truck didn't stop, and wasn't found, while the Honda made a U-turn and returned to the scene. Emery was initially taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, before being transferred to Christiana Hospital. He died Wednesday evening in Pinnacle Nursing and Rehab, where he had been since late December.

The DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit reportedly continues to investigate this crash, and say no charges have been filed. Police are asking anyone with information about the white pickup truck to contact Master Corporal K. Argo at 302-644-5020 ext. 117 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333. Tips can also be submitted to the DSP Mobile Crime App, texting DSP to CRIMES (274637), or by visiting the TipSubmit website. Www.tipsubmit.com
