Cyclist Dies in Dover Crash

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del.-  Dover Police are investigating an accident that left a cyclist dead.

Police say it happened around 3:45 a.m. Saturday on N. DuPont Highway. 

Police say 47-year-old Tobby Ayers was riding a bicycle in the northbound lanes, approaching W. Denney's Road.  At the same time, a 2002 Chevrolet Malibu operated by a 32-year-old man was traveling southbound approaching the same intersection.

Police say Ayers, who had a red light, made a left turn and attempted to cross N. DuPont Highway directly in the path of the car. Ayers was struck by the car, and died as a result of his injuries.  

According to Dover Police, it is believed that Ayers was possibly intoxicated and that alcohol was a contributing factor in this accident.  The driver of the Malibu does not face any charges at this time.
