Authorities say 47-year-old Gregory Hayes was driving his motorcycle to work when he crashed into a pickup truck on Marshall Road around 11:15 Friday night.
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says the driver of that truck, 32-year-old Salome Seay of Lansdowne, was drunk and driving recklessly.
“It looks like he pulled right, made the turn right in front of the motorcycle,” he says, “and the motorcycle had no chance to stop.”READ MORE: Philadelphia Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley Resigns Over Mishandling Of Remains Belonging To Victims Of 1985 MOVE Bombing
