KENT COUNTY, Mich. (WOOD) - A motorcyclist died after losing control of his bike and colliding with a vehicle on a Kent County road.
A man was riding south on Alpine Avenue near 12 Mile Road near Sparta around 5:50 p.m. Sunday.
His motorcycle crossed the center line and collided with a northbound Chevrolet Impala, according to a news release from the Kent County Sheriff's Department.
The motorcyclist died at the scene. It is unknown if he was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Emergency personnel extricated the two occupants from the vehicle, police at the scene told 24 Hour News 8. These victims were transported to a hospital to receive treatment to non-life-threatening injuries.
A resident witnessed the crash and told 24 Hour News 8 he is not surprised the wreck occurred. He said the speed limit in the area is 50 miles per hour and drops to 40 miles per hour near a curve. He said he sees four to five crashes in the area every year, and it's a dangerous spot.
Wind chills will be in -10 to +10, and snowfall totals in the 1- to 3-inch range.
A memorial marker was unveiled for three young siblings who died in an apartment fire 10 months ago.
Kent County leaders told 24 Hour News 8 they weren't surprised by Gary Rolls Jr.'s resignation from the Kent County Commission Thursday, but those that would comment were happy with the decision.
