Maryland Man Killed In Seaford Motorcycle Accident Saturday

Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal motor vehicle collision involving a motorcycle that occurred in the Seaford area last night.

On November 5, 2022, at approximately 7:35 p.m., a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, operated by a 33-year-old male was traveling northbound on North Market Street (Route 13A) attempting to make a left turn to continue traveling northbound on North Market Street at a Y-intersection. At the time, a 1997 Harley-Davidson Road King motorcycle, operated by a 59-year-old male of Hebron, MD, was traveling southbound on South Front Street entering the intersection of North Market Street. For unknown reasons, the Chevrolet turned left directly in front of the Harley Davidson. As a result, the front left of the Chevrolet struck the left front of the Harley, ejecting the operator.

The 59-year-old male operator of the Harley Davidson motorcycle was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Identification of the victim is pending notification to the next of kin.

The 33-year-old male operator of the Chevrolet was not injured.

The intersection of North Market Street at South Front Street was closed for approximately 3 hours while the crash was investigated, and the roadway cleared.

The Delaware State Police Troop 7 Collision Reconstruction Unit continues to investigate this incident. Troopers are asking anyone who witnessed this collision to please contact Master Corporal Argo by calling 302-703-3264.
