  • A Seaford man was injured Friday afternoon when his motorcycle struck a car on South Dupont Highway just south of Georgetown.
    James Darling, 33, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Beebe Medical Center in Lewes following the crash at the intersection of South Dupont Boulevard and Speedway Road, according to Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier.
    The crash occurred when a 1991 Lexus LS400, driven by 23-year-old Lewes resident Jazmyth A. Dennis, attempted to cross the northbound lanes of South Dupont Highway after stopping at a stop sign on westbound Speedway Road.
    Fournier said Dennis' Lexus pulled directly into the path of Darling's 2007 Kawaski Z1D motorcycle, which was heading north on the highway.
    Darling, who was wearing a helmet, was ejected onto the roadway when his motorcycle struck the front driver' side of the Lexus.
    Dennis and her three passengers – a 53-year-old woman, a 16-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy – were not injured, Fournier said.
    Dennis was later cited for failure to remain stopped and failure to have proof of insurance in her possession.
    Traffic in the area of the collision was impacted for less than two hours while police investigated the crash and cleared the scene.
