The Dover Police Department is investigating a fatal motorcycle crash that occurred early Friday morning.  At approximately 1:30AM on June 28th, 2019, witnesses (nearby residents) heard what they believed to be a collision in the area but did not locate it due to the dark conditions.  Police were not notified.  At approximately 5:24AM, a resident observed the crash scene and notified police.

Based on early findings, it is believed that Nicholas Dilorenzo (29/Wyoming, DE) was operating a 2001 Yamaha motorcycle northbound on Wyoming Mill Road at a high rate of speed at approximately 1:30AM.  Dilorenzo failed to negotiate a left curve in the roadway and lost control, traveling off the east side of the roadway and striking two fences prior to stopping in a backyard.  Dilorenzo succumbed to his injuries at the scene.  The crash remains under investigation at this time.
