New Salisbury man dies in motorcycle crash

A New Salisbury man died Friday night when his motorcycle crashed into a mailbox.
Anthony Kenneth Corbin, 43, was traveling northwest on Keller Drive when his Harley-Davidson left the right side of the road and hit a mailbox about 9:40 p.m., according to Officer Steve Duley of the Harrison County Sheriff’s Dept.
Duley said the mailbox was made of brick and concrete.
Harrison County Coroner Steve Hamm said Corbin died at the scene of massive head trauma.
Police are investigating the crash. There was nothing at the scene to indicate why Corbin’s motorcycle left the road. He was wearing a helmet, Duley said.
Corbin was a native of Louisville, born April 21, 1961, the son of Kenneth U. and Mary Jean Brockman Corbin of Ramsey.
He was an employee of Daramic Inc. in Corydon.
He was preceded in death by a sister, Joyce E. Corbin.
Survivors besides his parents include his wife, the former Kathy M. Roach; three daughters, Jacqueline I. and Erika J. Corbin, both of New Salisbury, and Dorissa Fancher of Marengo, and a sister, Tammie Brettschneider of Baltimore.
The funeral was yesterday (Tuesday) at Swarens Funeral Home in Ramsey with burial in Wood’s Chapel Cemetery. Dr. J. Morris Hannah officiated.
Pallbearers were Doug Conrad, Joe Higdon, Jerry and Terry Roach, Alan Staples and Rick Wolfe. Steve Satterfield was honorary pallbearer.
