GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Police have identified the motorcyclist who was killed in a two-vehicle crash on Grand Rapids’ north side Monday evening.

Treven Potter, 18, of Rockford, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which happened around 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Plainfield and Fuller avenues NE.
