The Delaware State Police are investigating a crash that occurred Thursday that sent two teenage bicyclists to the hospital.

Police say that around 3:51 p.m., Alfred J. Wyatt, 47 of Ellendale, was operating a 1992 Chrysler FifthAvenue eastbound on Zour Road in Georgetown and was approaching the railroad tracks west of Stockley Road. Three male teenagers on bicycles were traveling eastbound on Zoar Road just in front of the Chrysler. As Wyatt was attempting to pass the bicyclists on the left, the three began to cross the road in front of the car.

Wyatt attempted to brake and swerve more to the left to avoid the bikes, police said, but struck two of the bicyclists with the front passenger’s side of the car.

The boys, 14 and 15 years old, were removed from the scene by EMS and transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The third bicyclist, a 12-year-old boy, was able to avoid being struck and was not injured in the crash, police said. All three boys were not wearing helmets.

Wyatt was not injured in the crash but was cited for driving while suspended, failure to have insurance in possession and failure to change address.

The investigation into the crash in continuing, police said.
