The Dover Police Department Collision Reconstruction Team is investigating a fatal accident that occurred early on Saturday morning.  At approximately 3:42AM, Tobby Ayers (47) was riding a bicycle in the left turn lane of northbound N. DuPont Highway, approaching W. Denney’s Road.  At the same time, a 2002 Chevrolet Malibu operated by a 32-year-old male was traveling southbound in the right lane of N. DuPont Highway approaching W. Denney’s Road.  Ayers, who had a red light, made a left turn and attempted to cross N. DuPont Highway directly in the path of the Chevrolet Malibu. Ayers was struck by the vehicle as a result and died as a result of his injuries.  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.
