A 60-year-old man is in critical condition after crashing his motorcycle on Cedar Lane Road on Sunday afternoon.
Gary Brounce of Bear was riding his 2009 Harley-Davidson north in the 1300 block of Cedar Lane Road just before 2 p.m., when the motorcycle drifted off the right side of the roadway, according to Delaware State Police spokesman Cpl. John Day.
Brounce attempted to steer the bike back onto the road, but overcorrected and lost control, causing it to fall over, he said.
Brounce and the motorcycle slid north on the road into an embankment on the western edge of the road.
Brounce was flown to Christiana Hospital.
Cedar Lane Road was closed for about two hours.
The crash remains under investigation, Day said.
