GOLDEN TOWNSHIP, Mich.  – A Battle Creek man is dead after an ATV crash Tuesday at Silver Lake State Park.

The Oceana County Sheriff’s Department says that Evan Niedzielski, 20, flipped over on his “quad” at about 4:00pm Tuesday. AeroMed was called to the scene, but Niedzielski was pronounced dead before being transported.

Niedzielski’s death is the first fatal crash at the park this season.  A Detroit-area man was seriously injured in a crash last month.
