Police ID motorcyclist killed in Wyoming, 1 still critical

WYOMING, Mich. — The Wyoming Department of Public Safety says a man is dead and another in critical condition following a crash between a motorcycle and a car.

The crash happened at 7:40 a.m. Saturday on 28th Street SW east of Burlingame Avenue SW.

Police say two motorcycles were traveling at a high-rate of speed when a vehicle pulled out of a driveway and was struck by one of the motorcycles.

The motorcycle rider, now identified as 28-year-old Justin Bush of Wyoming, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the driver of the vehicle that was hit, 67-year-old Ricardo Trevino of Wyoming, was transported to a local hospital in critical condition.

The second motorcycle driver stopped briefly at the scene and then left without identifying but has since contacted police to give a statement.

Anyone with any information regarding this crash is being asked to contact Wyoming Public Safety at (616) 530-7300 or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345.

**Editor's note: Wyoming police initially misidentified the motorcyclist killed as Jason Bush. The victim's name is Justin Bush, which authorities have since corrected.

    I live close to this area and there have been many motorcyclists going 70-80 mph down Porter Street. I’m not exaggerating on the speed as all the neighbors have also been upset that someone will get hurt or die if this continues. I feel bad about what has happened but this was bound to happen if this careless driving continues.

        Kalamazoo Ave between 28th and 36th Streets as well. And as another bitch, even though Kalamazoo is not a truck route between 28th and 44th Streets, semis often run up and down the street 24 hours a day, and it’s not a truck route.

    I understand the situation and the right and wrong of speeding. No matter what, this young man had a family and so much of life to live yet. To say such cruel things shows your true colors and a person and lack of a heart. I feel for all parties involved.
