Motorcyclist Killed After Hitting Deer in Laurel

Posted:

LAUREL, Del. - Delaware State Police are investigating a deadly crash that happened Sunday night in Laurel, that involved a motorcycle, a deer, and a car.

State Police say it happened around 8:45 p.m. Sunday on SR 24 just west of Christ Church Road in Laurel. Police say a small deer ran into the roadway directly in front of the motorcycle, driven by 45-year-old Brian E. Davis, of Laurel. Davis hit the deer, which then caused his motorcycle to fall over and slide, ejecting Davis, according to police. 

Police say a Frankford woman, driving a 2008 Ford Mustang, didn't see Davis lying in the roadway and ran over him. After the impact, police say the Mustang stopped on the side of the road.

Davis was taken from the scene by EMS to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later, according to police. Davis was wearing a helmet.
 
Police say the driver of the Mustang and her two passengers, who included a 9-year-old girl, were wearing their seatbelts and were not injured.

The Delaware State Police Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing their investigation into this incident.  Alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor for either operator in this case.  SR 24 between Christ Church Road and Old Stage Road was closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated and cleared, police say.
