Motorcycle Rider Deaths Rise in Delaware

Delaware highway safety officials are alarmed at the increased number of motorcycle deaths and are urging riders to drive sober and wear helmets.

Authorities said 10 people have been killed in motorcycle crashes this year, compared to three as of this time last year. Only two of those killed were wearing helmets.

Jana Simpler, director of the state Office of Highway Safety, urged motorcycle riders to slow down and look out for road hazards.
