Chester man dies in moped wreck

CHESTER -- A 55-year-old Chester man died Wednesday evening when his moped went off a city street and crashed into a ditch, authorities said.

Lonnie Darby of 528 Fieldcrest Drive was traveling west on Hamilton Street just after 6 p.m. when the accident happened on a sharp curve, authorities said.

Chester Police Chief Mike Brown said Darby went off the right side of the street, then pulled the moped back across the roadway and went down the embankment. A man walking down the street found him.

Darby died from head trauma, said Chester County Coroner Terry Tinker. He said Darby was a longtime custodian at Chester County Regional Medical Center.
