A New Jersey man pleaded guilty Thursday to driving under the influence in a crash that left a 67-year-old motorcyclist seriously injured, the Bucks County District Attorney’s office announced.


Timothy J. Babbitt, 39, of Shamong, Burlington County, also pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person, and reckless driving in the Oct. 12 collision with the motorcycle operated by Vicky Mazzocca, of Warminster.

According to the District Attorney’s office, less than a half-hour before the 3 p.m. crash, Babbitt ordered six alcoholic drinks – three of them double vodkas – from an Ottsville bar. A large Gatorade bottle found in his car’s center console also contained an alcoholic beverage. 





Mazzocca was riding in the southbound lanes of Route 611 in Doylestown Township when she was struck from behind, thrown from her motorcycle and pinned under the bumper of the Ford work van driven by Babbitt as he continued to drive.

Mazzocca was taken to  Abington Memorial Hospital with multiple fractures, a concussion, and other injuries that required immediate surgery. She still suffers pain, officials said.

Babbitt was taken to Doylestown Hospital, where tests showed his blood alcohol content to be .269 percent, more than three times the legal threshold for drunken driving in Pennsylvania, according to the District Attorney’s office.
