WALKER, Mich. — A Grand Rapids man died early Wednesday morning after a motorcycle crash in Walker.

The crash happened at about 5:45 a.m. on Turner Avenue NW at the entrance to the ramp to southbound US-131.

Walker Police say the man was heading north on Turner Avenue when a 76-year-old woman heading south went to make a left turn onto the US-131 ramp. She apparently did not see the motorcycle and pulled in front of it. The motorcyclist hit her vehicle on the passenger side of her vehicle.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital. Police have identified the victim as 26-year-old Hunter Boss.

He was wearing a helmet. The woman was not injured.

Police say that speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash.
