07/07/2014 — Police say Kenneth Hunt 2nd, 24, of Dover, was killed when he crashed his 2004 Kawasaki ZX6 motorcycle at high speed into the rear of a 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck. Both vehicles were traveling on the southbound lanes around 1:40 a.m. Sunday.
Witnesses said they heard the high-pitched motorcycle engine approach the intersection of Coastal Highway and Old Landing Road. That is where they reported hearing an impact and the Kawasaki slide across the roadway toward Atlantic Liquors and burst into flames.
Despite the efforts of bystanders, state troopers and eventually firefighters, it took more than 10 minutes before the flames could be extinguished. Hunt was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say for unknown reasons, Hunt failed to see the Dodge Ram, which pulled off the roadway into the parking lot of MC Nails after the collision.
