The Dover Police Department is investigating a serious motor vehicle accident that occurred on Saturday afternoon. The incident occurred at approximately 3:14PM in the area of North DuPont Highway between White Oak Road and Centre Drive. A 2013 Dodge Charge and a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban were traveling south on S. DuPont Highway in that area when both vehicles attempted to enter the center lane of travel and collided. As a result of this collision, the Suburban lost control and crossed the concrete median into the northbound lanes of N. DuPont Highway. When the Suburban entered the northbound lanes, it struck a 2017 Harley Davidson Freewheeler Trike. The driver of the trike was ejected upon impact. The Suburban then struck a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.
The male driver of the trike sustained serious injuries and was transported to Kent General Hospital and then airlifted to Christiana Hospital where he remains in critical condition.
The two occupants of the Chevrolet Equinox were transported to Kent General Hospital for treatment of minor, non-life threatening injuries. The occupants of the Suburban and the Charger were not injured in this incident.
The incident remains under investigation. Any determination on potential charges will be made as the investigation progresses. The names of those involved are being withheld at this time.
