A 46-year-old Millsboro man died April 12 after he crashed his scooter near Gumboro.

Donald F. Davis was riding a scooter at 2:15 a.m. on Cooper Road south of Route 26 when he lost control while negotiating a sharp left curve, said Master Cpl. Gary Fournier of the Delaware State Police.

Davis, who was not wearing a helmet, crossed the southbound lane of the roadway striking his head on the pavement, Fournier said.

Both Davis and the scooter ended in a ditch. Davis was pronounced dead at the scene, Fournier said.

Cooper Road was closed for about four hours during the investigation.
