An intoxicated man fell from the rear of a rickshaw as it made the turn from Dickinson Avenue onto northbound Coastal Highway around 10:50 p.m. Monday.
Sgt. Clifford Dempsey, Dewey Beach police spokesman, says he heard the crash and saw the 22-year-old passenger unconscious on the ground bleeding from the head. Several officers came to the man’s aid. He slowly regained consciousness but remained confused.
He was taken to Beebe Hospital with a one-inch gash to his head. Sgt. Dempsey said the Rickshaw has had a good safety record, especially given the number of intoxicated passengers they transport.
