Montgomery man killed in resort area


A man from Montgomery County was killed on a road in the Dewey Beach, Del., area over the weekend after being ordered out of a ride-hailing vehicle, Delaware State Police said.

Sidney Wolf, 43, of Clarksburg, was hit by a car Sunday on the Coastal Highway after he and his friends were told to leave a Lyft vehicle following a disagreeme­nt with its operator, police said.

Wolf and five friends had hired a Lyft driver about 1:45 a.m. to take them from Dewey Beach to their residence in Bethany Beach, police said.

After the disagreeme­nt between the friends and the driver, police said, the driver stopped in the middle of the left southbound lane and demanded the passengers get out.

Wolf got out of the right rear side of the Lyft vehicle and was struck by a car that came up from behind, police said.

Its driver had swerved to avoid the stopped Lyft vehicle and did not see Wolf standing in the roadway, police said. Wolf died at the scene, police said.
