On Tuesday night, a motorcycle and a motor vehicle collided on Old Mission Peninsula, resulting in one fatality.
According to the Grand Traverse sheriff’s office, the 30-year-old motorcyclist was traveling south on Center Road when he was struck by a northbound driver who was attempting to make a left-hand turn.
The impact of the crash ejected the motorcyclist from his bike. He was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision but was pronounced dead at the scene. Three individuals were inside the motor vehicle, and none of them sustained any critical injuries in the accident. An investigation into the cause of the motorcycle-vehicle collision is under way.
Our thoughts go out to the motorcyclist’s family and friends during this tragic time.
