Driver Charged With Injuring Cyclist While DUI

October 12, 2016


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Robert James, 215.348.6332, rdjames@buckscounty.org

A New Jersey man was charged late Tuesday with aggravated assault while driving under the influence after his work van struck and seriously injured a motorcyclist in Doylestown Township.

Timothy J. Babbitt, 38, of Shamong, NJ, also was charged with driving under the influence, recklessly endangering another person and summary traffic offenses. He was arraigned Tuesday night before Magisterial District Judge C. Robert Roth, who set bail at $200,000, 10 percent.

The motorcyclist, 67-year-old Vicky Mazzocca of Warminster, was taken to Abington Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries that included a fractured femur and a concussion.

Mazzocca was injured shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday in the southbound lane of Route 611 near the Barn Plaza. Police allege that Mazzocca was riding her motorcycle when she was struck from behind by a Ford work van driven by Babbitt. The victim had to be removed from under the front bumper of the van.

Based on evidence at the scene, the arresting officer, Jessica Whiteside of the Doylestown Township Police Department, had probable cause to believe that Babbitt was under the influence of alcohol to a degree that rendered him incapable of safe driving.  Babbitt consented to a blood draw, and that evidence will be sent to NMS labs for testing.

The southbound lanes of Route 611 remained closed for several hours while the District Attorney’s Crash Investigation Team conducted a reconstruction.

A copy of the criminal complaint and probable cause affidavit may be viewed here.

    Daily we hear about different accidents that are happening in our society. It is very shocking to hear that a New Jersey man is charged with aggravated assault while driving and seriously injuring a motorcyclist. People should be more careful while driving and those who violate the rules should be punished seriously. best internet provider

    Very sad to hear about the injured motorcyclist. I think proper punishment should be given to this van driver who had struck him. If proper punishments are given, then people will be more careful while driving. Keep updating more news related to this. facial mask
