Delaware State Police are investigating the death of a Millsboro motorcyclist near Dover.

Officers with the Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash near Dover.

The accident took place at approximately 1:06 p.m. April 13 on Wyoming Mill Road, south of Hazlettville Road, said division spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier.

The rider, identified as Garrett K. Rudy, 19, of Millsboro, apparently was driving northbound when he attempted to negotiate a left curve. For unknown reasons, the motorcycle traveled off the east side of the roadway and struck a tree. The impact spun the motorcycle in a clockwise direction, throwing Rudy into nearby trees and bushes, Fournier said.

Rudy, who was wearing a helmet, was taken by emergency transport to Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Wyoming Mill Road was closed for approximately two-and-a-half hours as the crash was investigated and cleared.
