Howell Township crash kills motorcyclist, seriously injures passenger

A motorcyclist was killed and his passenger seriously injured in a crash Monday night in Howell Township.

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were dispatched to the area of W. Grand River and W. Highland Road at approximately 10:04 p.m. for a vehicle versus a motorcycle crash involving injuries.

According to a press release, a preliminary investigation indicated that a Chevrolet Traverse traveling east on W. Grand River failed to yield while turning into the Tomato Brothers restaurant. The Traverse was then struck by a 1993 Harley Davison that was traveling west on W. Grand River.

The driver of the Traverse, a 46-year-old Howell woman, suffered no injuries. The driver of the Harley Davison, a 33-year-old Adrian man, was transported to Sparrow Hospital by Livingston County EMS with life threating injuries and was later pronounced deceased at the hospital. His passenger, a 69-year-old Howell woman, was also transported to Sparrow by Livingston County EMS with life threating injuries.

The driver of the Traverse was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash, while both motorcycle riders were wearing their helmets. Alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor in the crash.

Deputies were assisted at the scene by personnel from Livingston County EMS, Howell Area Fire Department, and the Michigan State Police.

This incident remains under investigation by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Safety Bureau.
