Brockton, MA (July 10, 2018) – A 25 year old father died Monday night when his motorcycle collided with another vehicle in Brockton. Brockton police say that Devin Delacth of Brockton was riding his Suzuki Motorcycle on North Main, near Davidson Street around 9:40 pm Monday. He then collided with a Volkswagen hatchback and was ejected from his motorcycle.
A passerby noticed Delacth lying face down in the roadway with motorcycle pieces strewn about the road. She performed CPR on the injured man before paramedics arrived on scene. Delacth was rushed to Good Samaritan Hospital where he was pronounced dead from his injuries. The hatchback driver was uninjured and remained on scene to cooperate with the police investigation. It is not immediately clear what caused the crash to occur.
Local community members described Delacth as a caring person and a loving father to a young child. His girlfriend, Ashley Mendes, said she considered him her soulmate and the glue of their family and that he will always be loved and missed.
The crash remains under investigation. No charges were immediately filed in the aftermath of the accident on Monday night.

Motorcycle accidents can be, and often are, serious in nature. While riding a motorcycle brings thrills, it also brings dangers. Motorcycles have little protection from outside forces in the event of a collision as the rider’s body is completely exposed except for a helmet and any other protective gear they may be wearing. While we certainly encourage the use of protective gear, many times there is little to be done to prevent serious injury in a motorcycle crash.
In some cases, other drivers fail to respect the rights of motorcyclists to be on the road. They may fail to yield or fail to leave proper space between their vehicle and the motorcycle. This can cause accidents to occur which are not the motorcyclist’s fault. If a driver is negligent and their negligence leads to injuries, a motorcyclist has a personal injury claim against the driver.
