Original Story

Milton, DE- Delaware State Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle accident that occurred Friday morning south of Milton, according to Public Information Officer, Master Corporal Heather Pepper.

Pepper said on October 15, 2021, at approximately 7:26 a.m., a 2002 Jeep Cherokee SUV driven by a 52-year-old Georgetown woman was stopped at the stop sign on northbound Cool Spring Road at Stockley Road. A 2012 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic Electro Glide motorcycle, operated by a 52-year-old Lewes area man, was traveling westbound on Stockley Road, approaching the intersection with Cool Spring Road. Westbound Stockley Road at this intersection is a throughway, and traffic is not required to stop. The driver of the Cherokee failed to remain stopped and proceeded through the intersection into the path of the Harley Davidson said Pepper. As a result, the motorcycle collided with the Cherokee’s passenger side. The motorcycle came to rest within the intersection, and the Cherokee came to a controlled stop north of the intersection.

The driver of the Cherokee was transported to a nearby hospital with minor injuries, where she was treated and released.
The operator of the Harley Davidson was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased. Identification is pending notification to next of kin.
