A Deland man was killed in a Volusia County motorcycle accident Wednesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. FHP spokesperson Sgt. Kim Montes says 43-year old Kenneth M. Engelhardt had been westbound on New York Avenue on a motorcycle, approaching Grand Avenue shortly before 7 Wednesday evening. Troopers say a pickup truck driven by a 78-year old Deland man “…pulled into the direct path…” of the motorcycle, after making a stop on Grand Avenue at New York Avenue. The FHP says the motorcycle hit the left side of the pickup truck as the truck was crossing New York Avenue. Engelhardt had been wearing a helmet, according to the FHP. The driver of the truck was not injured. Troopers say the investigation and charges in the case are pending.
