A Delhi man died Thursday in a late-night motorcycle crash, according to Delaware County Sheriff Craig DuMond.

DuMond said deputies and Delhi emergency responders were called about 11:30 p.m. to a 911 report of a serious personal injury motorcycle accident on state Route 10 near Betts Hill Road in Delhi.

DuMond said an investigation revealed that Daniel J. Quackenbush, 46, Delhi, was traveling south when he lost control of his motorcycle, which ran off the southbound road shoulder before striking an embankment and rolling over in a ditch, ejecting Quackenbush, who suffered serious injuries.

The Delhi Emergency Squad transported Quackenbush to O’Connor Hospital in Delhi, where he died.

DuMond said deputies believe alcohol use and high speed contributed to the causes of the accident.
