DAGSBORO, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating a DEALY crash that occurred Tuesday morning along US 113 in the area of Parker Lane in Dagsboro.

Police say the incident happened at around 11:30 a.m. as a 31-year-old Millsboro man was driving a 2008 Honda CRF 450 dirt bike traveling north on the southbound shoulder of Dupont Boulevard (US 113), approaching the Del-One Federal Credit Union.  A 1994 Buick Century operated by a 46-year-old female from Frankford was leaving the Del-One FCU parking lot, preparing to merge into the southbound travel lanes. As the Buick was exiting, police say, the driver of the dirt bike was speeding and approaching the direction of the Buick. To avoid collision, the dirt bike driver attempted to slow down, but collided with right front side of the Buick on the southbound shoulder, throwing the dirt bike driver into the right lane of US 113.

According to troopers, the driver of the Buick was wearing a seat-belt and taken to Atlantic General Hospital for minor injuries. The dirt bike driver was pronounced dead at Beebe Medical Center.

This story will be updated as more details are available.
