Updated: Police ID Man Killed in Motorcycle Crash Near Bridgeville

Posted: Updated:

BRIDGEVILLE, Del. – Delaware State Police have released the name of a man killed in a Tuesday afternoon motorcycle crash on US 13 near Bridgeville.

The victim is identified as 33-year-old Joshua C. Hoffer, of Millsboro, Del.

Troopers said that shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday, Hoffer was operating a motorcycle north on U.S. 13 when he failed to stop at a red light and collided with a car passing west through the intersection on East Newton Road. The front of the motorcycle struck the front of a car, causing Hoffer to be ejected from his motorcycle onto the roadway.

Hoffer was transported to Nanticoke Memorial Hospital by ambulance where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the car, who police said was wearing a seat belt, was not injured in the crash.

According to police, Hoffer was not wearing a helmet. Police said while they do not believe impairment was a factor for the driver of the car, that cannot be determined for Hoffer at this time. Speed is not believed to have been a factor for either vehicle as police continue to investigate the crash.
