Earlier this month near Middletown, a motorcyclist died when he was involved in a two-vehicle accident near the intersection of Summit Bridge Road and Old Schoolhouse Road. According to one local news source that covered the incident, the accident took place at around 1:20 in the afternoon.
Evidently, the motorcyclist was heading southbound on Summit Bridge Road, and an Acura was heading northbound on the same road, when the Acura attempted to make a left-hand turn in front of the motorcyclist. However, the driver of the Acura misjudged the amount of time he had to complete the turn and struck the motorcycle before he completed the turn. The impact from the collision caused the motorcyclist to be thrown from the bike.
The motorcyclist, who was wearing his helmet, was pronounced dead on the scene by emergency crews. The driver of the Acura stopped his car about 150 feet from the intersection and remained on the scene throughout the police investigation. He was not injured in the accident.
