Three Dead in High-Speed Motorcycle Crash
Three people tragically died, and another was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash on Monday night near New Castle, Delaware. This is the latest preventable tragedy in a series of motorcycle accidents in Delaware.
In what has been described by local reporting as a high-speed motorcycle accident, a 2020 Kawasaki Zx6 motorcycle driving at a high rate of speed crashed into the side of a Minivan operated by a 47-year-old woman from New Castle, Delaware. The minivan driver was seriously injured, and both the front seat passenger (a 69-year-old woman from Sun City, Florida) and rear-seat passenger (a 16-year-old girl) were pronounced dead at Christiana Hospital. The driver of the motorcycle also died as a result of the accident that occurred near the intersection of Prangs Lane and Route 273.
