A 29-year-old man was killed early Sunday morning when his motorcycle struck a utility pole north of Middletown.
Delaware State Police say the accident happened at approximately 2:20 a.m. as Daniel E. Levinsky, of Middletown, was driving his 2011 Kawasaki Z1J motorcycle east on Bethel Church Road, near the Maryland state line, said Cpl. Gary E. Fournier.
Levinsky had just crossed from Maryland into Delaware when he failed to negotiate a curve and his motorcycle struck the pole, ejecting him off the bike.
Levinsky, who was wearing a helmet, died at the scene, Fournier said.
Police are continuing to investigate the crash.
