VALLEY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — One teenager died and another was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash early Sunday.

The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded around 2 a.m. to the single-vehicle crash near 118th Avenue and 37th Street on the northeast border of Allegan Lake, northwest of the city of Allegan.

Authorities say their initial investigation found that the motorcycle, driven by a teenage male with a female passenger, failed to stop at a dead end portion of 118th Avenue. The motorcycle hit several trees in a wooded area before coming to a stop about 30 feet from the roadway.

The driver, later identified as Austin Lee Brown, was pronounced dead.

The female passenger, whose name wasn’t released Sunday, suffered serious injuries.
