LOWELL TOWNSHIP, Mich — One man is dead following a Wednesday night crash involving a motorcycle and an SUV.

Deputies with the Kent County Sheriff’s Office say a 37-year-old man from Lowell Township was driving a motorcycle southbound on Alden Nash near Segwun just before 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, when he attempted to pass another southbound vehicle and crashed into an SUV traveling in the opposite direction.

The driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead on scene, while the driver of the SUV, a 67-year-old man from Lowell, was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

It isn’t yet known if alcohol was involved, but the driver of the motorcycle was wearing a helmet. The crash remains under investigation.
