ORIGINAL STORY:

A Salisbury, Md., man has been hospitalized after his motorcycle was hit by a pickup truck.

The incident occurred at 7:43 a.m. May 19, on U.S. Route 9, near Asbury Road, said Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier.

The motorcyclist, identified as Eduardo Giorgi, 47, was traveling on the road shoulder as it passed a number of other vehicles stopped in traffic, Fournier said. As Giorgi was traveling, a Toyota Tundra, driven by 33-year-old Joseph M. Rose of Georgetown, was turning onto Asbury Road; the truck’s bumper hit the motorcycle on its left side, throwing Giorgi forward and onto the grass.

Rose was able to bring the Tundra to a controlled stop on Asbury Road, Fournier said. Rose, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and then released.

Giorgi was taken first to the Nanticoke hospital and then transferred to Christiana Medical Center, Stanton, where he was admitted in critical condition due to multiple traumatic injuries, Fournier said.

No charges have been filed, Fournier added.
