Mr. Morgan failed to yield to oncoming traffic and was subsequently struck by a vehicle traveling West on Route 246. He did not survive the accident. The vehicle was operated by a 17 year old juvenile from Great Mills. At this time speed is not a factor in the collision. Alcohol consumption on the part of Mr. Morgan is a contributing factor.
