State patrol officers responded to a two-vehicle wreck involving a motorcycle early Wednesday morning in Delaware County in which a Greeley man was killed.

Troopers said Benjamin Malone, 24, was riding a 2002 Suzuki motorcycle west on Moody Street just before 7 a.m. when he attempted to turn left on Jet Road.

As Malone was turning, troopers said he struck a 2006 Dodge truck, driven by Stephen Lutz, 64, of Elkader, head on.

Malone was transported to the Regional Medical Center in Manchester where he was pronounced dead.
