A township man has died from a severe head injury suffered during a late-night, outdoor fight with a woman over the weekend, police said today.
Ryan C. Bickhart, 24, and an unidentified 22-year-old Pennsville woman were involved in a "verbal and then physical altercation" Sunday night when Bickhart fell backward and struck his head on the roadway, according to authorities.
He was airlifted from the scene to Christiana Hospital, Newark, Del., where he died from those injuries on Monday, authorities said.
According to police, they responded to the area of 114 Notthingham Rd. Sunday at 10:37 p.m. in the township's Penn Beach section for the report of a male who was believed to have been struck by a vehicle.
When they arrived, they found Pennsville EMS staff treating Bickhart who was lying in the roadway. Rescue crews took him to a site on nearby Industrial Park Road, where he was airlifted by medical helicopter to the Delaware hospital.
Authorities said Bickhart was standing in the street fighting with the woman who was driving a small, black pickup truck. They said the woman remained in the truck during the entire altercation which was "verbal and then turned physical."
At one point, Bickhart fell backward and onto the roadway where he struck his head.
He suffered a "serious head injury" in the fall, authorities from the Pennsville Police Department said, adding he was not believed to have been pushed.
Police said their investigation showed that Bickhart was not struck by the pickup truck.
Authorities declined to say what, if any, relationship Bickhart and the woman had. They also said it was not clear what the argument was about.
No charges have been filed and the incident remains under investigation, police said.
