Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, Del. - Delaware State Police say a Newark man was killed in a crash on East Chestnut Hill Road yesterday evening.

According to reports, the crash happened at 10:09 PM as Jose Lopez-Medina, 25, traveled eastward on East Chestnut Hill Road on a 2005 Yamaha R6L motorcycle. A preliminary investigation reportedly indicates that as he approached Augusta Drive, a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe turned left from westbound East Chestnut Hill Road, towards to Augusta Square Shopping Center.

Police say as the Hyundai crossed the eastbound lanes its passenger side was struck by the motorcycle, ejecting Lopez-Medina. He was reportedly transported by ambulance to Christiana Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police say he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The driver of the Hyundai, Ronyae Winfield, was reportedly not injured.

Police say the Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing its investigation and no charges have been filed. East Chestnut Hill Road was reportedly closed for approximately three hours as Troopers investigated and cleared the crash.
