The Dover Police Department is investigating a single vehicle crash that took the life of a 17-year-old on Sunday afternoon.  At approximately 12:39PM, Ryan Bundschuh of Felton, DE was operating a 2007 Kawasaki ZX6 motorcycle on Garrison Oak Drive in the Garrison Oak Technology/Business Park off of White Oak Road.  Bundschuh was performing a “wheelie” (riding with the front wheel off of the ground) while riding northbound on Garrison Oak Drive.  The motorcycle then struck a curb on the edge of the roadway, ejecting Bundschuh off of the motorcycle and striking a pole.  A friend that was with Bundschuh called 911 immediately.  Bundschuh was transported to Bayhealth Kent General Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries as a result of the crash.
