DRUMS, Pa. - A sport utility vehicle crashed head-on into a line of motorcycles on a charity ride, killing one person and seriously injuring several others, authorities said. William Delaney Jr., 41, was killed Sunday when his motorcycle was struck by the Chevrolet Blazer that crossed the center line, said William J. Feissner, a Butler Township police officer.

Delaney's wife, Linda Delaney, 40, who was riding on the back of the motorcycle, was listed in critical condition Monday at a hospital.

Two other motorcyclists were critically injured and at least three others were hospitalized with lesser injuries, Feissner said.

Investigators believe the motorcyclists were not wearing helmets.

The SUV driver, Jeffrey M. Borrin, 25, was headed southbound on Route 309 when his vehicle crashed into the northbound motorcycles, Feissner said.

Borrin was uninjured. An infant, Damien Borrin, was buckled in a car seat in the rear of the vehicle and was taken to a hospital as a precaution, Feissner said. Borrin said he had lost control of the SUV after being distracted by the child, Feissner said.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation and no charges were filed.

About 150 motorcycles were taking part in the Chris Jones Benefit Bike Run, a ride for charity that started in nearby Wright Township, Feissner said. The motorcyclists were being escorted on their ride by authorities.
