September 20, 2007|By Richard Irwin

A Cecil County motorcyclist died last night at Maryland Shock Trauma Center of injuries sustained after he collided with a pickup truck at an intersection in Havre de Grace, said state police at the Bel Air barracks.

Police said David John Peters, 46, of the 500 block of New Bridge Road in Rising Sun was operating a 1999 Harley Davidson Ultra Classic motorcycle east on Route 155 about 6 p.m. when he was struck by a 2005 Ford F-250 pickup truck driven by Eris Alexi Santelizvanegas, 32, of Havre de Grace, who failed to grant the right of way to the motorcycle when he attempted to turn left onto Route 155, police said.

Police said Peters attempted to avoid the pickup truck but struck the truck's front bumper and was thrown from the cycle.

Police said Peters was airlifted to Shock Trauma, where he died an hour later. The pickup truck driver was not injured.

The accident was under investigation.
