WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — A motorcyclist was killed Wednesday afternoon after colliding with a semi-truck trailer on the 44th Street bridge over US-131 in Wyoming.

Wyoming police identified the motorcyclist as Miguel Angel Feleciano, 37.

Police say a semi driver who was westbound on 44th misunderstood the traffic lights as he turned onto southbound US-131. The semi driver pulled in front of the eastbound Feleciano, who had the green light, and the motorcycle hit the semi’s trailer.

Feleciano was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police shut down 44th Street over the highway and barricaded the on- and off-ramps as they investigated. Drivers were asked to avoid the area.>>Inside Traffic conditions
