Original Story

Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash that occurred Tuesday night in Milford, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Heather Pepper.

Pepper said on August 10, 2021, at approximately 8:24 p.m., a 1980 Kawasaki KZI motorcycle operated by a 25-year-old Milford man was traveling southbound on Bay Road (SR 1) approaching New Wharf Road.

A 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV driven by a 38-year-old female from Milford was traveling northbound on Bay Road (SR 1), in the right travel lane, just north of New Wharf Road. For unknown reasons, the motorcycle exited the east edge of Bay Road southbound, traveled south through the grass median, entered the northbound travel lanes, and directly into the path of the Hyundai said Pepper. The front of the Hyundai struck the right side of the Kawasaki.

After colliding, the motorcycle came to an uncontrolled stop and came to rest on its left side. The Hyundai continued traveling north, exited the east edge of Bay Road, and the front center struck a utility pole.

EMS transported the motorcycle operator to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The Hyundai operator and 19-year-old female front seat passenger were not injured.

The roadway was closed for approximately three hours while the collision was investigated, and the roadway cleared.
