PARK TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A motorcyclist was taken to the hospital with serious injuries Wednesday night after a crash in Ottawa County.

It happened around 8:53 p.m. on Lakeshore Drive near Quincy Street in Park Township, near Holland.

Authorities said the motorcyclist was going north on Lakeshore Drive at a high speed before going off the right side of the road, hitting a large rock and re-entering the roadway, where the motorcycle and its driver came to rest.
