A 60-year-old Bear man involved in a Nov. 17 motorcycle crash in Middletown died three days later, police said.

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, where he was listed initially listed in critical condition. Day said he had been transferred into hospice care at the hospital before his death on Nov. 20.
