By Nick McCrea, BDN Staff

Rockport police have identified the bicyclist whose body was discovered Saturday on Mt. Pleasant Road, according to a local media report.

The body of David Wayne Allen, 51, of Rockland was discovered Saturday by resident who lived near the site of an apparent fatal bicycle crash, Randy Gagne, chief of police for Camden and Rockport, told the Courier-Gazette on Wednesday.

The Camden Police Department did not announce the discovery until Tuesday.

“It appears that the deceased failed to negotiate a sharp turn in the road on his bicycle and struck a tree head-on,” Gagne said Tuesday. “We are not sure at this point when the accident occurred.”

Police are still investigating the incident.
